How it's made

Here’s how we make our minimalist bifold.We use traditional techniques with leather from some of the highest regarded tanneries in the world to produce an item that is built to last for many years and age beautifully.Below, I’m using Pueblo from the Badalassi Carlo tannery in Italy. It’s a vegetable tanned leather that has a slightly roughed up surface that gives it its distinctive, vintage look. These fibers will compact over time, giving it a great looking sheen.These are the hand tools I’ll be using in making the wallet.
Leather is selected and pieces are cut. The exterior is the ortensia color, a stunning blue-green, and the interior is the cognac color.
The “T-slot” is thinned down with a French edger to reduce bulk.
Pockets are creased.
Edges are beveled and burnished.Bevelling removes a thin strip of leather, rounding the edge.Burnishing is a process of using friction to compact the fibers. It’s only possible to burnish vegetable tanned leather. Pueblo burnishes beautifully, becoming quite glassy.I use water, CMC, and mill wax in the edge finishing. Varying grits of sandpaper are also essential in achieving a super smooth edge.
Pockets are glued to panels.
T-slot is sewn to panel.
Pocket is glued beneath T-slot, and left side is trimmed. Trimming provides a perfectly smooth edge, which will greatly aid in edge finishing.
Pocket is sewn on. The edge is then creased, beveled, and burnished as before.
Lining is glued to body.
Panels are glued on to body, and the wallet is trimmed to size.
Stitching holes are made.
Wallet is saddle stitched. Saddle stitching is a method of using two needles to achieve a very strong stitch that won’t unravel if a thread is cut.
Outer edges are creased, beveled, and burnished.
The wallet is finished.
Thanks for taking a look at our build process!

I had a lot of

I had a lot of questions and requests for pictures that Silas was kind enough to answer. He will also fulfill any customization requests to the best of his ability.

Although I needed a new wallet I didn’t expect to feel so oddly happy about in person. Really enjoy it’s construction and color choices.

Delighted

Absolutely wonderful service, at a very competitive price. Leatherboundink was very helpful in choosing leather colours/combinations. Once ordered a clear waiting period was given, which was held to. The shipping was expedient. Product was flawless on arrival, I hope it lasts this way for a long time!

Excellent product & service

I found this product on a social media platform. The owner answered my questions quickly, and I was impressed with their products. It was the right time for me to spend more on a homemade, professional, and long-lasting wallet. I look forward to not having to get a new wallet every year or two for a long time to come!

Phenomenal Product!

I commissioned a minimalist bifold after seeing one in the ready-made products that had already sold -- the owner was happy to make me an identical one. I just received the wallet today and looks every bit as amazing in person; the construction is flawless and the material is beautiful. Can't recommend this operation highly enough, you won't be disappointed!
