Luxury men's wallet
... How to group all of his papers in an exquisite wallet
Yes, when we love leather, over time, we become experts in finishes, tint, shades of color, touch, and we become demanding on the origin of raw materials. I am delighted to be able to share my passion for leather through the creation of not only beautiful objects, but also intelligently designed to be loved and to remain at the service of their owners as long as possible.
One day, I found a sumptuous leather and I decided to create a collection of luxury wallets for men.
I think you have already heard of these stiff, smooth leathers that are worn for 30 to 40 years and do not age? This type of leather generally luster over the years, keeping an irreproachable appearance. We call this leather "box". Being young, I was fascinated by the bags or wallets made in "box", my only regret was a perception a little too classic.
Can you imagine my joy when, at a leather show, I found the leather of my dreams ?! The French tannery who introduced me to this wonderful leather has a great reputation in the world of leather goods. They are known for their exemplary finish and great work ethic. The "box" finish is made on skins of young calves, with a surface of barely 1m². The skins are quite thin, smooth and weakly rigid. They seemed absolutely perfect for an exquisite realization of pieces of small leather goods. And to begin, I wanted to create a collection of luxury wallets for men.
And of course, when you start to imagine the models that will serve 20, 30 or 40 years, you focus on the essentials. No wonder the first model named "JET LAG" was a wallet in which it is possible to stow passport, driver's license, registration card, ID, bank notes, and 6 credit cards. All compartments in this wallet are lined with calf leather, in blue color. Why blue? It is a royal blue color which for me is the color of France. I wanted the person who would wear this piece, think of the great know-how of our country, remembers the beauty of Paris and our history. This is how in a beautiful French workshop, this luxury wallet for men was made.
My husband became the first lucky to use this wallet 8 years ago! One day inattention the beautiful "JET LAG" was found in the bottom of a basket filled with large pine cones! He was bored for at least two days in this basket! When finally the pine cones were released and the unfortunate "JET LAG" extracted from the depths of the basket ... The surface of the wallet was strongly marked and filled with sap (oh pain!). After cleaning the wallet of the sap and lecturing my poor husband "you only have what you deserve, and obviously you do not deserve to use beautiful pieces! I gave him his battered wallet. With a sorry and faulty head he put the wallet back in his jacket pocket ... The time has passed, I forgot (almost) this sad story, but one day a year later, I asked him for administrative purposes his ID. And what was my astonishment when he pulled out his wallet again smooth ?! No trace or footprints of pine cones remained! He was just impeccable!
Today when I look at this portfolio carefully I can see that the leather has changed. Initially satin, the "box" was glossed by the friction against the fabric of the pockets, and now I find in him that luster that I admired so much in my youth. Except that this time I find that the wallet is not boring, it reminds me of the magnificence of the sea, the beauty of Paris, and I am proud of the work of the tanner and the workshop that made this beautiful piece . As for my husband, he is now paying much more attention to the pretty things he wears, and I am very happy that he is there and shares moments of happiness or disappointment with me.
