Video showing the making of a the premium Horween Leather Port Wallet.
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.
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!
