The Tanner Bates Cut Edge Billfold Wallet
Introducing the Cut Edge Billfold Wallet
, a symbol of meticulous craftsmanship and timeless style, proudly designed and handmade in Dartington, South Devon. This wallet represents a harmonious blend of traditional techniques and modern aesthetics, available in two distinct types of leather: oak bark-tanned leather from East Devon and full-grain Italian vegetable-tanned leather from a prestigious Florentine tannery.
Each wallet is a masterpiece, featuring a 13-piece cut-edge design showcasing the leather's natural beauty. Its dimensions, H 95 x W 110 mm when closed, make it a compact yet practical accessory for everyday use. We also offer bespoke personalisation options, allowing you to add a personal touch or create a unique gift for someone special.
The essence of our wallet lies in the choice of leather. We use full-grain leather, tanned with oak bark from the Lake District and dyed by hand, ensuring each wallet has its unique charm. Unlike the commonly found "corrected grain leather," our process retains the natural texture and irregularities of the hide, celebrating its inherent beauty.
We believe in the authenticity of the leather's appearance, embracing its natural variations.
Our leather is initially 5mm thick when it arrives from the tannery, which we skillfully reduce to about 1mm for crafting the Cut Edge Billfold. This thickness is crucial for durability and aesthetics. Unlike many wallets with a turned edge to conceal the leather's edge, our design philosophy differs.
We prefer to showcase the superb edges of our oak bark-tanned leather, as we believe that lesser quality leathers require hiding their edges with a turning technique.
The process of perfecting the edges of our wallets is a testament to our commitment to quality. Our workshop has no shortcuts; we meticulously sand the edges with progressively finer emery cloth, down to 1200 grit, to achieve a perfectly smooth, burnished finish. This attention to detail not only enhances the wallet's durability but also its elegance.
Our Cut Edge Billfold Wallet is not just a mere accessory; it's a piece of art that reflects the passion and skill of traditional leather craftsmanship, combined with a deep respect for the material's natural characteristics. It's an accessory that stands the test of time in style and structure.
In the quest for the perfect Christmas gift, leather accessories from Tanner Bates
tick all the boxes. They are versatile, durable, and possess a timeless charm. So, the next time you need a thoughtful gift, consider a handmade leather Christmas gift and make a choice that will impress you.
