There are lots of choices when it comes to buying a minimalist wallet but we must say that the Wingback Leather Slim Wallet is the only wallet that gives you the option to tailor or sew on your own. Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience in sewing, this unique wallet kit comes with everything that you need and as long as you can thread a needle and push it through a few pre-made holes, you can proudly claim to have sewn your very own leather wallet.
The Wingback Leather Slim Wallet is the brainchild of Alasdair MacLaine who successfully launched and funded the wallet on Kickstarter. The wallet is stitched together from a single piece of leather that is available in 3 colors – Chestnut Brown, Ochre Tan and Charcoal Black. The completed wallet can hold up to 5 cards plus it has an extra wing for holding your bills. The wallet itself is only slightly larger than a credit card.
Buyers have the choice of ordering the Wingback Leather Slim Wallet either in finished form or they can order a kit which comes with a pre-cut piece of leather plus a sewing kit with a needle and 8 different thread colors. Clear instructions are included on how to hand stitch your wallet. If you choose the kit option, not only do you get to customize the stitching pattern and colors, you even save a whopping £10 off the £25 price of the finished product.
There is also an option to personalized your wallet by adding up to 20 characters on the outside plus a message up to 35 characters on the inside. This option costs an extra £5.
