Horiz - a handmade camel leather card wallet

Horiz - a handmade camel leather card wallet

Regular price $145.00 Sale

With a fun throwback to Jimmy Jet and His TV Set by Shel Silverstein, the "Horiz" is one in the Flip Card Wallet collection. For the person who wants zero bulk, this one will quickly become a favorite. It has four inner card slots, and nothing else, making it a super slim everyday carry. Card slots are horizontally-oriented. Check out his brother, Vert, for a vertically-oriented card wallet.
Each wallet is constructed from full grain camel leather, which has 3 times the shear strength of cowhide. Having 10 times the collagen fiber density of cow leather, it has  a truly unique texture and grain.
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.

  • Leather: Full grain camel leather

Full grain camel leather - each hide may vary slightly in color and markings.

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.
