Just finished this navy leather billfold wallet, available in my Etsy shop here. It was hand cut from quality fine-grain navy cowhide leather and durably machine stitched with strong nylon thread throughout.
Fully lined with a bright multicolour stripe print fabric and expertly hand finished. The hand punched triangle motif on the front of the wallet shows the contrast lining colours underneath.
A fold down section with 3 card slots flips up to reveal a further 3 card slots. Each card slot holds 2 cards each, so twelve cards in total.
There is a hidden pocket behind the card slots for receipts and papers, and a spacious notes pocket to fit paper money up to 8cm x 20cm.
The coin pocket has a quality metal YKK zip, and the side panel expands to allow easy access to plenty of change.
All cut edges are hand treated for durability and give a superior finish.

I make every item personally at my workshop in Bristol, UK. I welcome commissions for personalised wallets and custom items.
The one above has a marbled, book endpaper style lining I found at Harrogate Knit and Stitch in November 2013. Many different fabric sellers were there, I also spotted a stand promoting Bradford Textile Archive a part of Bradford College, which looks interesting.
I have been exploring my new home city of Bristol by pursuing my interests: record shops (recent discoveries to follow) fabric shops, cinemas and galleries.
As for fabrics, poppypatchwork.co.uk have a wide range of fabrics on offer and are based in nearby Westbury-on-Trym.
Wanted Records in St. Nicholas Market is great for vinyl, think I’ll be back there soon!
Recently made to order as a gift for a film buff…
The wallet is hand cut from soft calfskin leather throughout. The wallet is two tone: black outer/grey inner with contrast yellow stitch. The lining is printed with film reels (familiar to anyone who has been in a cinema projection room) and was supplied by the customer for this special order. The hand punched initials give an extra personalised element.
