I hadn't thought about making a wallet until last Christmas when there were so many requests for a wallet with the Blade+Blue dachshund logo.
Well, it took a year to get these & they are literally hot off the presses!
I worked with a leather maker in Chicago to make a wallet that had enough room for all of my cards (and money too!) & that would not hurt my a** when I sat down!
It was a surprisingly difficult task, I had no clue.
To construct the wallets, I used a supple veg tan leather in warm reddish brown tone. But here is the deal, this wallet just keeps on getting softer with use - this is the main reason why I selected it.
The color will also change a little over time (in a good way).
The one I have been using became deeper & the red highlights just came right through.
After the leather was finalized, the pieces were all handmade in Chicago.
There were originally 4 slots for your credit cards but I upped it to 6 at the last minute - otherwise you would end up stuffing your cards into the slots and your wallet would be really thick. You would hate me for doing that to you!
The money pocket is a standard size even though I barely even use that section!
And as you wished, the Blade+Blue dachshund is embossed on the interior lefthand corner.
