q dot simple card holder 1

Quentin's design for a simple and entirely eco friendly wallet/card holder. The prototype that is shown in these photos is made from kenyan kid skin(goatleather), however it has also been made form kangaroo leather. The entire wallet is made from natural products and is there for compostable.

The leather is vegetable tanned.

The stiching is 100% cotton

The glue used to laminate the layers of leather is natural latex bassed with all natural additives including cassein(milk protein).

The oil finnish is 100% natural australian lanolin.

The photos show the card holder just after manufacture before it has been oiled and then after oiling and with around six months worth of ware. As the leather ages it darkens, partly due to me wearing the wallet in my jeans, but it also becomes beutifully soft.
