Our original creation, the one that started it all.
The Wingback Card Holder Kit is your chance to get creative. We’ve completed every step in making the Card Holder but left the final hand-stitching part to you. You’ll receive a single piece of unlined leather, seven thread colours, a needle and instructions on how to finish it. Stitching is pretty straightforward but for a bit of extra guidance click here.
About the Card Holder. The Wingback Card Holder is a modern, minimalist take on the classic leather wallet. Designed to hold up to five cards (but with room for more over time) and several banknotes while retaining a compact profile, the Card Holder streamlines your daily carry. Every wallet is made from full grain Tuscan leather, selected for its firm and rugged quality. Over time the leather will develop a unique patina, picking up markings as trophies of the journeys you’ve shared together. If you’d prefer a ready made Card Holder, click here.
Leather: Full grain, vegetable tanned, environmentally certified leather from Tuscany, Italy.
Thread: Coloured heavy gauge Gütermann thread from Germany, Europe.
Card: Recycled Forest Stewardship Council-certified paper stock from Northumberland, UK.
Finish: Laser cut, bevelled, burnished and packaged in London, UK. Hand-stitched at home by you.
Dimensions: 62mm x 88mm x 5mm
Capacity: 5+ cards, several banknotes
Considerations: The leather will feel stiff at first but with use it will soften and conform to hold its contents snugly. As such you can gradually increase capacity but not decrease it.
Engraving: For bold inscriptions, pick a lighter leather colour. The darker the leather, the more subtle the engraving.
