    Accent Pocket Color?

    What color would you like?

    Please summarize discussed customization.

    Please enter quoted customization cost.

    *Thread

    Matching thread to the lighter colored leather is generally recommended (except in the case of exotic leathers, where matching the thread to exterior is preferred). For more contrast, consider off-white or gray thread. Note: As item is hand-sewn, thread color will be the same on both exterior and interior.

    Standard font is limited to capital letters only (max 2 of the same letter). The old style font is smaller, but more expansive allowing for upper and lower case letters as well as numbers and symbols.

    Initials will be stamped in the inner bottom right corner for folding items and in the front bottom right corner for non-folding items, unless specified otherwise. For items with the mini pocket addition, initials will be stamped in the center.

    Please note that foil show may premature wear compared to the rest of the item.

    Please upload black-and-white JPG. Highly complex images will not be possible. Clearly defined lines work best. Alternatively, feel free to email the image to sales@leatherbound.ink at a later date.

    Order Notes


SKU: Categories: Wallets

This is the extra compact version of the vertical bifold.

It’s a little shorter, narrower, and slimmer and omits a 3rd card pocket on the right side.

Design & Capacity

  • 4 card pockets
  • 2 hidden pockets
  • Optional rear and mini pockets
  • Best suited for 3-10 cards
  • Super slim design is suitable for front pocket carry

The mini pocket is best used to store folded cash, small membership cards, tickets, etc.

Construction

  • Hand sewn using the saddle stitch method
  • All edges are finely creased and polished to a smooth finish
  • Semi-lined

I employ both burnishing and hand painting in my work. I will choose a suitable edge treatment depending on the leathers chosen. If you’d like a specific edge treatment, please add your request to the order notes.

Materials

  • World-class French, Italian, or Japanese leathers (according to above selection)
  • Polyester thread for superior abrasion resistance

Water-based glue is used to glue edges and lining. After edge burnishing or painting is complete, a paraffin beeswax blend is applied. Reinforcement is used with Chèvre Crispé and Sherpa interiors to prevent stretch and reduce bulk.

Dimensions

  • Height: 10.22cm (4.02″)
  • Length (when folded) 7cm (2.76″)
  • Thickness (at edge) ~0.76cm (.3″)

Thickness may vary slightly depending on leathers chosen.
