We did a lot of research prior to designing our Roadster, as our goal was to produce a long wallet, which was equally substantial, stylish and practical.

It has a slightly slimmer profile at 100mm wide (when closed), to make sure it sits comfortably in the rear pocket of most denims when worn with the sold brass tether. The brass tether ring can also be removed to allow the wallet to sit inside a jacket pocket, if preferred.

This Ltd edition of the wallet is hand crafted from genuine Horween Shell Cordovan with a contrasting inner made from Tärnsjö Garveri organic leather, sourced from Sweden’s reputed Tarnsjo tannery. Horween Shell Cordovan is reputed to be the finest leather in world with unique properties that can’t be imitated. Both the leathers that we use for this  wallet have a rich heritage dating back centuries and have a reputation for making only the finest quality leathers.   This is a unique wallet and will develop a stunning patina over time, only getting better with age!

Storage is important, so we’ve included 8 credit card pockets, 3 full length note pockets and also two ‘vertical’ card pockets for driving licence etc. There is also a zipped compartment for change etc secured with a high quality ‘Riri’ zipper.

Each wallet comes complete with a solid brass wallet chain with solid brass hardware, and also a complimentary 5ml bottle of neatstfoot oil for conditioning the leather.

Ethically handmade with traditional tooling and using skills and techniques that have been passed down through generations. The edges are hand dyed and burnished for durability.

Made from genuine Horween Shell Cordovan, with Tarnsjo Garveri organic leather inner.

Shell Cordovan is renowned for its extremely hardwearing properties, and was originally manufactured by Horween in 1905 for use as razor strops due to its durability.

Considered to be the finest leather in the world, it is also one of the most sought after leathers in the world and in constant short supply as only limited quantities are produced.

The process the shells go through takes a total of 6 months, and is extremely labour intensive. Each equine hide is hung on frames and pit tanned using Horween’s own unique tanning solution, which includes tree barks and resins.  The hides are moved around regularly to ensure each hide is evenly tanned, then after 30 days they are removed and the hides ‘shaved’ by hand to reveal the ‘shell’ membrane. The shells are then pit tanned in stronger solutions for a further 30 days, to ensure both the outer and inner fibres are penetrated by tannins. The shells then undergo various processes for a further four months, including the ‘hot stuffing’ of various fats, oils and greases into the leather, and also hand polishing to achieve the high gloss the leather is famed for.

The pockets and lining are made from organic Swedish leather from Tarnsjo Garveri. Established in 1873, they are amongst 5% of tanneries in the world using traditional vegetable tanning to produce their leather. The tannery is located in a forest on the banks of the Tärnsjön lake in Sweden and uses hides from local Swedish farms to produce superior quality leather.

Tarnsjo are committed to responsible, sustainable manufacture, and to minimising the environmental impact of the tanning process. Each hide can be traced back to the farm it was sourced from and each process it goes through is certified to be fully organic.
