Showcasing the craftsmanship of two historic English brands, The British Belt Company and Clayton & Sons, this bifold wallet makes a handsome addition to your daily carry. The British Belt Co. has been making leather goods since 1946, and today its collection includes everything from belts and bags to notebook covers and hip flasks. For this wallet, it uses shell cordovan from Clayton & Sons, a renowned tannery established in 1840 in Chesterfield, where it still operates to this day. Lined with natural full-grain calf leather, the bifold features a traditional layout with a bill pocket and four card slots on each side.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of leather color: black or oxblood.
Pioneered in the Middle Ages by the Moors, shell cordovan has roots in Spain, with the city of Cordoba lending its name to this rare leather. It comes from the fibrous flat muscle, or shell, taken from a specific part of a horse’s hide. Rather than creasing, it has a rippling effect that allows craftsmen to use it for beautiful items like shoes or wallets in a variety of rich colors. Regarded as one of the most durable forms of leather, it’s also celebrated for its supple texture. The shell cordovan from Clayton & Sons is widely known for its high density and natural water and stretch resistance.
