Build Your Own Bifold in Italian Buttero


  • How many card slots should the wallet have inside?

    What color should the outside of the wallet be made of?

    • Wallets made in a single color will have the billfold lined in that color.
    Interior Color

    Should the interior of the wallet be a different color than the exterior?

    • When choosing an accenting interior color, the lining of the billfold will match the interior.

    Wallets are hand stitched with bonded polyester thread for superior abrasion resistance and wear.


    Personalize your wallet with up to three initials, foil stamped in black or gold foil on the inside lower right corner of the wallet.

    Leave this field empty if you do not want any personalization in the wallet.

Considered the classic wallet design, a traditional bifold is both elegant and utilitarian. It is a mainstay of fashion and style for all types of dress or occasion and gives you the means to carry many cards as well as bills, while keeping a slim profile for ease of carry and use. The six slot wallet measures 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ when closed, and the eight slot measures 4″ x 4 1/2″.

Green Buttero Bifold Wallet

Buttero is prized for its depth of color and tight, consistent grain, which produces a satin-like sheen. This wallet is using Green Buttero for its exterior.

These wallets are made with Italian ‘Buttero’ (meaning Cowboy) vegetable tanned leather from Conceria Walpier tannery in Tuscany. Buttero is prized for its rich depth of color, smooth consistent grain finish and patina development over time and use. I completely hand stitch the wallets using polyester bonded thread to ensure that they resist thread abrasion. These qualities combine to create a hard wearing wallet with great longevity that will only look better as the leather ages over the years.

The card slots are sized generously enough to store cards with ease, and some slots will be able to hold two or more cards, although be aware that they will stretch over time if you choose to stuff them. I burnish the back sides of all card slots to let the cards slide in and out easier. Behind the banks of card slots are two additional larger slots, ideal for storing business cards or other important notes.

Handmade Bifold Wallet

There is ample room for cards.

The billfold is lined in leather (if you’ve chosen a two-tone wallet, it will be lined in the color of the interior) for a finer appearance and luxurious feel. The right mix of contrasting colors between exterior and the billfold liner can be absolutely stunning and make these not just wallets, but conversation pieces.

Every wallet is hand made from start to finish. I cut, assemble, stitch and finish these wallets myself. It takes me, on average, around 8-10 hours to complete a single wallet if I am working on just one at a time. Consequently, it takes me a bit of time to complete my orders, so please allow 4 weeks for delivery after placing an order. Shipping is via USPS Priority Mail with insurance. International customers, please contact me to arrange shipping details.
