    Pueblo is a full grain vegetable tanned leather from the Badalassi Carlo Tannery in Italy. It has a slightly rough feel initially that will turn into a lovely sheen with time. Its unique look and feel has made it one of the most popular leathers in high-end leatherwork.

    'Buttero' and 'Dakota' are the two smooth leathers used, which are produced by neighboring tanneries in the Tuscany region in Italy. They are two of the finest examples of vegetable tanned leather there is. They are of a medium-firm temper and matte finish.

Listed capacities are a rough guide to help you choose a suitable wallet. If no wallet suits your desired carry, I’d be happy to discuss making a custom wallet for you. If you need further recommendations, feel free to contact me.

Note: Cards and cash compete for space in many of the wallet designs, so carrying at or near capacity for both cards and cash simultaneously won’t be possible.
