SKU: STPTC10007-nv Categories: , , Tags: , ,

A compact wallet that expands to carry cards, bills and coins. The cash pocket fits bills such as $, ¥ and £ bills, and the coin pocket can also change to carry extra cards.

For durability, the smooth surface cowhide is used on the outside with pressed cotton pockets inside. The leather is tanned using vegetable tannins from the mimosa tree. Vegetable tanning takes more time but does not use the toxic compounds needed for chrome tanned leather.

 

Postalco works with traditional Japanese skills and methods to produce bags, wallets, fine stationery, and accessories.

 

Handmade in Japan.

About Pressed Cotton Fabric

This fabric is made with the same machines that were used to make tent fabric. The base color of the white threads will become more apparent and it will soften with use.

To keep the natural feeling of the material, the surface is not waterproof coated. Instead, there is a light water resistant treatment. Cotton is a natural material so slubs and irregularity in the fibers are part of its character. It is possible for wrinkles to appear as well.

Care

If your item gets wet, pat dry with a soft cloth to absorb any liquid. With strong rubbing the color may come off leaving light spots. Please shade dry in a well ventilated area. If placed near air conditioners or heaters the item may warp.

Cowhide

With use the shine will mellow and surface scratches picked up along the way will get worked in. The color will also deepen with use.
