From Hide to Hand: The Making of our Wallets

July 28, 2017

Each of the wallets in our minimal wallet collection is made from start to finish in our Denver, CO workshop. Beginning with raw materials, we work directly with Midwestern tanneries to source high quality vegetable tanned leather that will look great and hold up over time. Then, we meticulously cut and assemble each piece using a combination of traditional tools and contemporary techniques. We've carefully designed and field tested all of our wallet styles, refining them so that they minimize clutter while maximizing function.

In this post we invite you into our workshop and show you the process of making one of our newest styles, the Slim Wallet

No matter what you have planned this summer (and beyond), we've got you covered. Check out the guide below for a rundown of our project-ready apron collection.


The Canvas Shop Apron serves up a double shot of utility and style. Sturdy cotton canvas lends ruggedness and durability, while double stitched pockets offer versatile function for any job. Want to keep a pen or small tool handy? Pop it in the chest pocket. Rivet enforced waist pockets are perfect for stashing a notebook or phone. Tailored for a close fit, the Canvas Apron is more garment than accessory. Adjustable neck strap makes for comfortable all-day wear, and waist ties are long enough to tie in front or in back to keep them out of the way. Streamlined fit, casual style, and functional details make it favorite among baristas. Barista pro tip: wrap ties around the front and tie them underneath your apron for a clean finish.
