Paper currency, identification, and a few of your most-used cards go hand in hand with the billfold. Side-entry card slots ensure everything stays put, and the slim silhouette rides nice and tidy in either a front or rear pocket.
Individual sections of 4oz Wickett & Craig veg tan leather are cut from the hide, after which I trace and hand cut the arcs along the interior panel. I then bevel the edges, punch the stitch holes, and assemble the components together. Hand stitching comes next, which is done with beeswax-coated thread to help lock each stitch in place. Pocket corners are backstitched for extra reinforcement. The edges are then sanded smooth, coated with beeswax, and burnished. Each billfold comes in a natural tea-dyed cotton bag and includes a handwritten information card.
