Product Description

A minimal handmade wallet in a hand dyed veg tanned saddle leather allowing for your indispensable cards plus some cash. This unisex leather wallet is perfect for the men who want to reduce pocket bulk, or for the gals who would like to leave the purse at home and carry out only the necessities.

This design uses a single piece of leather wrapped around itself, with only the needed stitching, to complete a beautiful minimalist design. Pack your main cards in an outside pocket, your cash in the short pocket, and the lesser used cards inside the center port. Pro Tip: Squeeze in extra cards at night during your first week of ownership, to speed up the break in period on your Port Wallet.

The Port Wallet fits comfortably in the front or rear pant pockets as well as in the palm of your hand. Carrying one of these wallets for a week will have you wondering why you carried all that other stuff around in a bulky uncomfortable wallet all these years. The Port Wallet is cut and saddle stitched by hand in North Idaho using quality vegetable tanned leather. This wallet will age nicely as it breaks in and forms to your wallet contents. 

Saddle Leather

This saddle leather will require some breaking in on your part. Pack it with extra cards each night while it sits to speed the process. Soon it will be supple and comfortable. The Saddle Leather option comes with a coat of neatsfoot oil and a coat of Saddle Soap protective conditioner applied to protect the leather from moisture, salt and dirt and give it a waxy smooth feel. The color options are oil dyed by hand in medium brown, dark brown and mahogany.  For the leather enthusiasts who want the touch of an earned patina, you can choose the Natural Leather option. This option is also oiled and waxed for protection. From there, the rest of the patina is up to you! Start the aging process off quick by letting your Natural Leather Port Wallet sit in the sun for a few hours to give it a sun tan. From there, daily use plus the natural oils in your hands will begin to give you a beautiful patina that can only be earned through time.

When you develop a beautiful patina, be sure to post your patina photos to Instagram and tag them with #portwallet along with @craftnlore to show us your handy work!

    QUALITY: Very high quality material and craftsmanship. The hand stitching is made to last.

    DESIGN: Great looking color and design. It took about a week or two to “break in” but now it’s perfect. I use the center compartment for my business cards and the outside pockets for my cards and cash. Compact size fits nicely in my front pocket when I don’t want to sit on it.

    OVERALL: Beautiful little wallet that is very functional. Very reasonably priced for the quality as well. Highly recommended.

    The 5 port wallet is a great option for anyone looking to simplify what they carry around with them. I don’t even feel it when I am sitting and it fits perfectly in my front pocket for times that I’m in large crowds and wanna make sure its secure. I chose the dark brown with white stitching and believe me when I say it looks awesome. The leather is really high quality and feels like it is made to last. I highly recommend this wallet!

    I got this wallet for a Christmas and it looks and feels gorgeous. The reason I’m writing this review is that I actually dropped it out of my purse onto the side of the road last week and it was found 2 days later in a snow berm. The guy who found it and tracked me down to return it could not believe it had been sitting in the snow for 2 days. Everything from the leather, the coloring, and the stitching is still pristine and looks like it did when I first received it months ago. Now that’s quality!

    I can’t even explain in words how amazing this wallet is. The craftsmanship is top notch, I’ve been using this wallet for a few months and it shows nothing of wear or tear. Chad is a nice guy and answered all the questions I had in a prompt and. Professional manner. I would recommend this product and any other of craft and lores. Look nowhere else!

    Just got my 5 Port Wallet in the mail today. After 10 seconds I absolutely fell in love with it. It’s exactly what I expected it to be from seeing it on the website and I’m super happy with it. The quality is very impressive and I will for sure be a repeat customer.

    I’d like to post an update to a previous review. I’ve had my 5 Port Wallet for about 6 days now and it’s wonderfully broken in and even better. It’s now beginning to get it’s own character as it’s being used and that is just what I was looking for. Thanks again!

    After searching for the wallet I really wanted for quite a while I stumbled upon craft and lore, as soon as I saw the port wallet I knew it was what I was searching for. I emailed Chad a couple of questions and he got back to me within the day and was incredibly helpful and honest about his work. I ordered the wallet and it showed up just over a week later, it is exactly what I ordered, there wasn’t a piece out of place or anything unexpected. The packaging it came in was original and fit the wallet and the idea of the wallet itself perfectly, the time and craftsmanship put into this wallet is pretty astounding, especially for one person doing all the orders. The cut and dye of the wallet is perfect, the smell and feel of real quality leather is immediate, the stitching is spot on as well. I’ve been carrying this wallet daily for three weeks and it is exceeding what I was hoping for in a wallet, as Chad says it will require some breaking in on your part, but like all things in the vein it forms to you and only gets better as you use it. I’ve received multiple compliments on the wallet and sent people off to Craft and Lore without question and really hope they pick something up because in doing so you are supporting a good person doing good things, quality things, things that mean something and will last. Buy this wallet, I promise you won’t be disappointed. Thank you to Chad for all the time and hard work, you’ve created something that will outlast me.

    A great minimalist wallet, it fits in the front pocket very nicely. I carry 3 cards in the top, my debit in the next slot down, and a few bills and it works great. The craftsmanship and fit and finish on it is second to none. At the $50 price point it is a steal and I can highly recommend it. Thanks again Chad!

    I love a nice slim, front-pocket wallet that’s able to hold a small stack of credit cards and some cash. I first heard of this wallet in one of Steve Montelli’s YouTube videos. After emailing Chad a few questions, he promptly replied to me, showing his focus on customer service. I placed an order later that night and the wallet was made and shipped out in about a week. It obviously takes a few extra days to get a handmade wallet.

    It’s absolutely great. It’s definitely not too big but it’s big enough to hold cash, an ID, 3-4 credit cards, and an RFID security card. It could hold more but it’s not broken in yet and I don’t need to carry any more. The leather looks great and the stitching is very nice. I’ve already received a multiple compliments.

    I’ve been looking for a card sleeve type wallet that had more than one compartment to keep less used cards stashed away and more used cards and cash prominently displayed. After a couple years and a handful or two of wallets, I think I finally found it. And, on top of that, it’s reasonably priced too!

    Where do I start? I thought the photos looked great on the website but upon arrival I realized a photo cannot do this wallet justice. The perfect blend of durabilty and pocketablity, forming the quality saddle into a great wallet for all your essential cards and some cash. And the smell is so rich. Its everything I hoped and more, thanks again Chad!

    Well Chad, you just caused more work for me. I LOVE THE WALLET. I now need to go find another gift today since I will be keeping this wallet. And no, I will not give this one as the gift and order another one. The quality of the wallet is awesome. The stitching and the edges look great. Much better then Saddleback and Col. Littleton. You rock Chad.

    Thanks Chad. I can stop looking for a new wallet, now that this one has arrived. It fits everything I use and will ever need in a wallet. You do great work and I’m very impressed. It will nicely compliment other products I will soon purchase from you. It smells and looks completely genuine, qualities hard to find in other places. Very happy with the finished product. Thanks again.
