EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

England’s Flatleather delivers a unique handmade trifold; but would you carry it?

Made in England of full grain leather, the completely handmade Flatwallet III model has a unique take on the traditional trifold wallet. Flatleather doesn’t rush anything, and the resulting wallet shows by delivering a clever, functional design that is fun to use. You’ll get plenty of inquisitive looks and questions when you pull this wallet out.

Let’s open up the Flatwallet III trifold wallet. This is a cool looking wallet, its color is English Tan and it’s made from full grain leather.

As you saw we got 10 cards and just fine and as the leather stretches it will allow more cards.

It’s made from a Horween Dublin full grain leather which is excellent. And you can see all of the scars and life of the animal lived which gives it all kinds of character.

It is handmade in England, Sheffield to be specific.  That area has gone from an industrial era powerhouse to an arts and culture scene.  For this wallet, handmade means it is hand cut, hand stitched, hand beveled, and hand burnished, no machines are used in the making of these wallets. And because each one is handmade, it can take upwards of 2 weeks from your order to be made to send to you.

The price is $100 which may appear to be high. But that includes converting it from British Pounds to US Dollars and also taking into account that it’s all handmade construction. With that, I’d say this is reasonable and the uniqueness qualifies this wallet on the price. It is very easy to use with the elastic strap which ensures this wallet will stand out and keep what’s inside secure.  The only potential concern would be the strap becoming too stretched or breaking, but it’s manufactured by a firm just down the road from them and Flatwallet hasn’t had a reported failure in over 2 years. However, if you have an issue, I had a wonderful email conversation with the owner, and there’s no doubt they’ll take care of you.

It measures 4.2” x 2.95” x .5” thin. Flatwallet has built a unique offering around specific design characteristics, using the highest quality material and ensuring that leathercraft is alive and well. I’m really keen on this wallet and encourage you to try them out.

 Now let’s get into the final score; for quality a 5, for price a 3, features a 4, usability a 3 and perception a fo4ur. That gives us a final score of 3.9 out of 5 or 39 out of 50.
