Dancing Card Wallet - a handmade camel leather card wallet
The Dancing Card Wallet began as a custom request, but now it has its own place in the online shop. When you are going out and you just want a few cards and some cash, this is the perfect solution. With a 4-inch strap and clip, it can clip to your belt loop and sit safely inside your pocket. The length of the strap allows the wallet to sit below the edge of the pocket out of view. The flap is closed with a solid brass snap (nickel-plated in the image).
If you would like a different color of hardware or leather, please inquire via the contact form for what is in stock.
Every wallet is cut and stitched by hand. I use a luxury French Fil Au Chinois "lin câblé" thread that I coat with beeswax. This the same thread used exclusively by craftsmen for Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and others. Every stitch is made by hand using the long-lasting saddle stitch. Even if a stitch is cut, it will not pull out like a stitch made by a sewing machine.
Size: about 4" x 2.25" (10cm x 5.5cm)
Leather: Full grain camel leather
Stitched by hand with French Fil Au Chinois "lin câblé" thread

--- Why camel leather? Our choice to use camel leather is intentional as they require up to 40X less water than cows, which significantly reduces their impact on the environment. Camel leather is up to 3X stronger than cow leather, and much softer. The camel leather we use is ethically-sourced and chemical-free. Up to 80% of the water used in the tanning process is recycled, and the waste is composted.
All of our designs are completely made by hand without machines in our California workshop.
