Old Leather Wallet Restoration


Old Leather Wallet Restoration

This is an old leather wallet we made about 10 years ago when I (Eric here!) was just starting to make larger leather craft pieces. The owner now has a large collection of our leather work, and brought this piece in to be restored and re-worked for modern day use.

The interior was originally made from 5oz leather which was way too thick! We replaced it with an interior made from 2/3oz leather for a much more slim profile. We adjusted the layout in the restoration and added a zipper pouch as well.

We kept the exterior of the wallet because after 10 years, the leather has beautiful patina and we wanted to keep it. As always we used a saddle stitch and vegetable tanned leather to hand craft the final wallet, and it is ready for another decade or two before it needs another restoration!
