I am so proud to tell you about my newest design! It has been underway in sample mode for months already.. I needed a friend who actually ordered this wallet - her support helped me finish off that last bit! My idea was to make a classical wallet in 100% westerman Bags style. Usually I add wool felt to my designs - you will not find it in here. For two main reasons: although it added a touch of colour to the plain leather wallet, it also added bulk. And I wanted this purse to be as slim as possible. So I had t work with an exception to my own rules. And then there is durability. The leather will last and last last .. The felt however, or any other fabric lining, will wear out. Do you remember that favorite wallet with the holes in the lining where you had to fiddle out the coins from behind the fabric? Well that is solved in this wallet. No lining!
The initials are custom and optional. The YKK zipper has fine teeth but a strong closure. Made with only the best parts of our vegetable tanned water buffalo leather hides. Made by hand in our Dutch studio.
