    Standard bifold has 6 card pockets, 2 hidden pockets, and 1 cash pocket. It's also possible to make 4 or 8 pocket versions.

    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

Design & Capacity

  • 6 card pockets
  • 2 floating pockets provide easy access to additional cards or cash
  • Bills can be placed behind the floating pockets, eliminating the need to fold them
  • Best suited for 6-14 cards + cash

Compared to the classic bifold, the advantages of this design are that it’s slimmer and it’s easier to access additional cards. The disadvantages are that cash and cards compete for space and that cash is more easily handled in the traditional design.

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

  • Full leather construction using full grain leather from world-class tanneries
  • Polyester thread for superior abrasion resistance.

Dimensions

  • Height: 8.4cm (3.31″)
  • Length (when folded) 11cm (4.33″)
  • Thickness (at edge) ~0.76cm (.3″)

Modern Bifold

I placed an order for the modern bifold around Christmastime '19 and received the final product some short weeks later. The maker was readily communicative throughout the manufacturing and delivery process- I was never left in doubt with its progress. I am more than satisfied with the final product, and it exceeds my expectations both in durability and beauty. At the time of this review entry, I am thrilled to say that my wallet is one of the very examples pictured in advertisement of the model. It is every bit as beautiful as it is portrayed on the webpage. I would wholeheartedly recommend this craftsman to anyone who wants personal leather effects with a special touch.
