-- PORT WALLETS SHIP WITHIN A WEEK --
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.
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 American tanned leather. This wallet will age nicely as it breaks in and forms to your wallet contents.
This harness 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. This high grade harness leather from the Wickett and Craig tannery in Pennsylvania is Hot Stuffed with a proprietary time-proven mixture of waxes, oils, and tallows, giving it a multitude of uses. The natural finish of this Harness is done the traditional way by using a glazing jack to bring the oils to the surface to give it a shine and waxy smooth feel without hiding any of the natural beauty. Don't be afraid of scratches or marks appearing, as this is true full grain leather that will get nicked and marked and was made to take the abuse. If scratches, marks and signs of wear are a deal breaker for you, we suggest a pleather wallet from your local mega-mart.
Natural Vegetable Tanned Leather
For the leather enthusiasts who want the touch of an earned patina, you can choose the Natural Leather option. Some of the best veg tan leather available, these hides are from a 140 year old European tannery and is a favorite to work with. This option will require some leather conditioner for protection. The rest of the patina is up to you! Start the aging process off quickly 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!
