James Michael Brook workshop tour, Shinki Horsebutt Wallets

Our first run of wallets made in collaboration with Canadian leather craftsman James Michael Brook was a complete success.

Check out this video from James’ workshop walking us through his process and attention to detail.


James’ expertise and devotion could really be appreciated when I came to visit him in his Quebec studio.

Working by hand, he sands and burnishes the edges, and stitches each piece himself. I couldn't be happier with the final wallets.

These ultra sleek pieces are made with Japanese Shinki Horsebutt and are available with a super strong Horsebutt Lanyard and FOB so they'll never fall into the toilet or onto the ground.

This is an extremely limited run - order today while you still can!
