The "How it is Made" below describes how Fiona made this item. You can select your stitching colour above.
Analine is a specific tannery finished, full grain leather that is dyed at the tannery and retains the hide's natural grain. It is quite flexible, but can "hold its own shape", and can be engraved with a name and Sparrowhawk's wings.How is it made?
The personalised Leather Passport Wallet is made from full grain, tannery finished aniline leather and tannery finished top grain black leather. The analine leather is hand cut to size for the passport sleeve and the back "pocket" is also cut to credit card size. The analine piece is sent for laser engraving. On return, an edge groove tool is used to trace a stitching line onto the pocket. The pocket is affixed to the back cover of the analine sleeve and stitching holes are punched through, 3 at a time with a stitching chisel tool and rawhide mallet. The pocket is hand stitched to the sleeve using an Irish Linen waxed thread in a two needle saddle stitch. Then a stiching guideline is traced on the front "cover" of the wallet, and back and front are fitted together. Stiching holes are punched and the front and back of the wallet is handstitched together. The edges are sealed with a black waxed edge coat, and a finishing wax and polish is applied.
