Cotswold Shinki Hikaku Shell Cordovan Long Wallet
It was started as a custom order for an existing customer but and after I finished it looked really good so that I wanted to add it into my regular work.
The long wallet has a very simple design with 3 compartments altogether and 5 card slots. It is sized to fit a flip top American cheque book but will also accommodate most major bank notes.
I hand dye vegetable calf skin for the internal panels and the external is made from Shinki Hikaku, Japanese Shell Cordovan.
Shinki Hikaku Shell Cordovan leather comes from Kobe, Japan. Shinki has been in the business since 1951 and is one of only a few remaining tanneries in Japan. They are well known for their attention to detail and excellent products. I find that the Shinki Shell Cordovans are different to others suppliers with beautiful more polished finish and a less waxy feel. It makes them perfect for smaller items like mine.
This wallet is available only as a made to order item.
The colour available as:
External: Antique Brown, Black
Internal: Natural, Hand dyed turquoise, Hand dyed yellow
