Pack your bag with a passport wallet as unique and special as your upcoming travel. This wallet is handcrafted using bison leather and wolffish leather. The interior is unlined for a more rustic appearance, with 6 individual slots for cards, and 2 large pockets. The exterior has 2 pockets as well for optional use. Handpainted edges consist of 4-5 layers of paint that are sanded smooth and waxed for a luxurious look. Handstitched using a french waxed linen thread in a saddle stitch technique for long lasting durability. The spotted pattern of the wolffish is unique to each fish, ensuring that your wallet is unlike any other design of ours. Also available in a lined version using 2 layers of buttero leather as part of our Pesce Collection.
Hand crafted in small town Wyoming, Wyofish Leather Goods uses Spotted Wolffish fish leather from Iceland. The fish leather is caught for food production off the northern coast of Iceland, with the skin being a byproduct. The skin is then tanned a few hundred yards from the water where it is then tanned at a tannery powered by geothermal energy. In Wyoming we then create luxurious, distinctive small leather goods designed to be used and be seen. We use non-toxic water based glue, hand-stitch everything with a french waxed linen thread. Finally the edges are finished by an edge painting technique commonly used in high end luxury leather craft. The edge is painted then sanded, taking between 3-5 layers to build up to a smooth, round edge. The final result is a truly one of a kind item. No two wallets are the same due to the unique spotted pattern of each individual fish, similar to a set of fingerprints. Proudly carry and display your wallet and wait for the envy to set in, followed by lots of questions!
