About Our Designs
We want our wallets to last a lifetime. As a result, we have selected only the best leathers available to us.
- Pueblo: A very special Italian full grain leather by the ‘Badalassi Carlo’ tannery, who have perfected their recipe over 60 years. Pueblo is dyed through, finished and then artistically buffed using a special machine that gives that rustic look. Pueblo leather has an amazing patina as it ages. Application of our leather balm will cause it to smooth as it wears too.
If you want more information on the leathers, or some help choosing, just drop a message via our contact form, or via @candtphil on Instagram. We are always happy to chat about these amazing leathers!
We stitch each Whinlatter handmade leather wallet using a proven heritage technique called “saddle stitching”. Saddle-stitched items are much stronger than “lock stitch” items produced on a sewing machine. A lock stitched item may start to come apart if the thread is broken in even just one place, whereas a single break in the thread will not usually allow a saddle-stitched item to come apart.
Treat the item periodically with a very small quantity of our C&T Leather Balm. Apply it to your hands as a thin film and rub it onto the leather to keep it moist and supple. Application of more than a very thin film of balm to the pueblo leather items is likely to smooth the leather into a less matt finish (which you may or may not want!)
If you spend >£75 on C&T Leather products, we will include a 50ml (full shoe polish size tin) of Leather Balm, as well as the 15ml sample we ship with each order.
