Leather cardholder wallet from Himel Bros. And Black Acre
When we can’t find the perfect accessory, at Himel Bros., we have the luxury of designing one ourselves. Another luxury is our Rolodex of artisans at the forefront of their respective crafts. A well-worn card in that Rolodex is Ray Lansburg’s, whose work speaks for itself.
A hallmark of David Himel’s design is the organic line, the hand-drawn curve which can only be imitated by machine. Our cardholder perfectly encapsulates the beauty and function of this approach—handling it is a tactile joy, and cards slide into slots easily and hold well.
We guard our stocks of Shinki Horsebutt jealously. We expended the majority of this extremely rare, Cordovan-tanned leather last year, making our King Mob Monkey Boot. A few details:
Leather is pit tanned using a fully vegetable-based process at Shinki Tannery in Himeji, Japan. Due to high connective tissue content, the leather is nonporous, extremely durable, and uniquely resistant to creasing. It contains the hard “shell,” underlayer, making these wallets nearly impossible to destroy.
The wallets are lined with pliable, vegetable-tanned goatskin, and their interior features are constructed from the famous English Bridle leather tanned by Wickett-Craig.
Our hardware is solid brass and made in Japan, and the wallets are handstitched with overdyed Japanese dark green thread.
- Completely handmade by Ray Lansburg in his California workshop.
- Leather is cut and skived by hand.
- Stitched with Japanese Green OD thread.
- Edges are hand burnished.
- Dimensions: 7" x 5" open, 5" x 3.5" closed.
