This black leather passport cover is a genuine 100% handmade passport book style cover / wallet. It has 3 pockets designed to hold credit cards, mileage or airline club cards or visa photos. There is a long compartment where you can store travel itineraries or cash and a compartment to hold your passport book. The Inside of this passport cover is lined with black vegetable tanned cowhide leather.
This wallet is fully hand cut, assembled, sewn, and finished using traditional leather working tools. The sewing is all done with waxed polyester black thread using the traditional double needle saddle stitch method.
We use genuine vegetable tanned 4 1/2 ounce (approximately 1.8 mm thick) cowhide leather that has been embossed with a crocodile grain texture to make this wallet. The leather is a much thicker leather than you typically find on a department store wallet. While the leather is thicker, we have applied oils to the leather to make sure it is flexible and supple to the feel. We chose to use this texture because it makes each wallet completely unique and provides a very interesting texture for the exterior of the wallet.
The edges are all burnished by hand to give them a finished look.
The wallet has a semi gloss waxed finish.
Closed Size: 4 1/8" wide x 5 1/2" tall x 3/8" thick (10.5 cm x 14 cm x 9 mm)
While every effort is made to make all of these passport covers look the same, the crocodile grain on yours will not exactly resemble the grain on the passport cover pictured. Because this passport cover is made from genuine cowhide leather there may be small imperfections in the leather. We don't use corrected grain leather and as such, any slight imperfections in the leather are due to the natural texture in the leather.
Due to the nature of vegetable tanned leather, your passport cover may initially be a bit of a tight fit with your passport, credit cards and money. Over a period of the first few weeks of use, the leather will relax, absorbing the oils from your hands, and stretch and mold itself around the cards and money inserted into the wallet.
Oh, just to make sure, any money or credit cards pictured in the photos of this wallet are not included in the purchase of this wallet.
