Veg-Tan Leather Slim Wallet - Mahogany
The slim wallet is small enough for a front pocket, and features a cash slot (for folded bills) and a card pocket. These wallets are cut by hand, burnished with all-natural vegetable gum, and hand-sewn using a saddle stitch with waxed polyester thread. The sewing is finished with a lock stitch to ensure the thread never moves or unravels. This wallet will last forever.
Leather Type: Veg-Tan leather will develop a very unique look depending on how you live your life! Skin oil, sun, wear, and even dirt all contribute to the overall look as your strap ages. Veg-tan leather starts out a little stiffer and more dry than a chrome or combination tanned leather. It is also more vulnerable to moisture. It's recommended that you treat the leather with a conditioner or oil every few months to prevent the hide from drying out or cracking.
Thickness: This leather is 2-3oz which means it is 1.2mm-1.5mm thick. The leather is tripled over in spots, so the whole thing, empty, is 4.5mm thick at most.
Stretch: Veg-tan leather doesn't stretch much initially, but over time will form to stress. We fit 10 bills and 8 cards into this wallet with no break-in, then removed everything but one card and it did not fall out when turned upside-down and shaken. The construction of the wallet "pinches" the cards on the stitched side so even one card can be held securely after the leather has broken in to hold many more.
Size: 4" x 3" x 0.2"-0.17" (75mm x 100mm x 4.8mm- 4.5mm)
