The name of this color scheme is both an homage to one of my favorite brands of Whiskey, and also an allusion to me since this is the same wallet I personally carry. It is monotone in all Whiskey Buttero, which I love because with time it develops more patina than some of the other Buttero colors. I like the Whiskey because it stays within the realm of traditional browns but also brings a warmth and richness that makes this color glow in the right light. I chose to stitch it with orange thread to further bring out the warmness of this color. Since I first began making wallets, this has been my favorite color of Italian leather and even now years later I find myself always coming back to it when people ask me for a color recommendation. I think you’ll enjoy it too.

Many people find carrying a traditional bifold difficult because of the size, but also have trouble with the minimalist approach with other slim wallets or card wallets. For lots of storage in a small package, the mid wallet form factor is worth considering.

This wallet folds down to a size of only 3″ x 4″, and still has room for eight cards, two hidden card slots, and a billfold for carrying cash. Bills must be folded in half due to the small size of the wallet, but that is a small price to pay for the compact package.

The wallet shown has an exterior billfold but this is optional. If you choose to order the wallet without a billfold, cash will fit behind the hidden pockets if folded twice. When folded in half, the bills will peek out from the edge a little bit. I use my personal wallet with the billfold and carry business cards and less-often used plastic cards in the hidden slots, but how you use your wallet is up to you.

Buttero’s dense grain allows it to polish and burnish into something truly beautiful, especially as it wears!

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.
