This wallet was constructed with full-grain leather. All leather has grain, which is the tough fibers and pores in the top part of the hide, but most cheaper wallets. Most places shave a lot of the grain off (watch how they shave it here at minute 6:30) to get rid of what is considered the ugly marks on the hide like scars and whatnot, but in doing so, they take off the grain, which is the toughest part of the hide and what makes the leather durable, get a nice patina and be super water-resistant. When they remove some of the grain, the leather is called top grain leather. When they remove ALL of the grain, it's called genuine leather. And they do it just to save leather while taking away the strength, durability and water resistance of the hide. Leather isn't cheap and they don't want to lose the profit from throwing away the leather that has scars and marks on it. They just sand it off. It's why this full grain leather bifold wallet is so expensive.
We line this leather wallet with pigskin, which is tougher than the cow leather. It's how we can offer a 100-year Warranty. And then we sewed it with the incredible marine-grade polyester thread. It's what ship sails and parachutes are made with. If your life depends on it, use this thread. And in between the pigskin and the cow, we put a layer of Radio Frequency ID blocking material to block thieves from scanning your wallet to steal your identification from your passport or off your credit cards. It happens all day long.
The reason bank tellers and store cashiers will compliment you on your wallet is because of the Full Grain leather ages so nicely. Why you'll give us a compliment back is because of the design. I designed it to stay slim and flat when it's loaded with cards and cash by putting only two even credit card pockets on opposing sides to stack your cards, business on one side and personal cards on the other. Because you stack them, there won't be layers of leather between the cards, adding thickness to the wallet. And it stays flat. The size is wide enough to comfortably fit cash. It seems simple, but it is a very well thought out narrow bifold wallet.
