Portrait Wallet

This wallet has been designed for cartage on dashboard or in saddlebag, in purse or briefcase. It is for the traveler to town who remains unhurried in the tasks of provisioning, accountancy and pleasure.  Great care has been taken to put together a wallet that is versatile in function while remaining minimal and lasting in aesthetic.

Full-grain vegetable tanned Kangaroo leather as been employed because it is an ethical product that carries a history and heritage of use in Australia greater than any endorsement from the maker himself. Subtle scarring can be read in the grain of each wallet that tells a story of the life of the animal from which it has been made. The beauty of these wallets will deepen with age owing to the ability of such leathers to patina from contact with the human hand and the world in which they travel.

The Portrait Wallet holds identification and banknotes in two card and one note sleeve(s) (left hand facing), up to 12 credit or other cards (right hand facing) and a reserve of currency or stored tax receipts in the large central cavity. Folded and stitched edges ensure a robust and lasting construction.

In making each wallet a commitment to craftsmanship, beauty and durability is upheld by favouring hand processes to achieve a superior product. Hand stitching with hand-rolled and waxed natural fibre threads and folded and stitched edges mean these wallets are set apart from manufactured goods in ways the trained eye will detect and the owner will learn through experience.


Ordering: Each wallet is handmade to order by James B Young in his Alice Springs workshop. Please allow up to 4 weeks for the delivery of your wallet from the time of purchase.
