A classic in the LOUISE wallet line up since 2011. I’ve done 8+ versions of this wallet — truly one of my favorites. The front pocket is essentially seamless, so you gain a significant amount of storage space for cards, cash and change!
I usually put the basics in the front back pocket (Metrocard and business/debit card in the very back for quick access) and then stuff my cash and change in the big front pocket. If you went with all cards, it would hold 16 easily.

Mahogany and Black leathers are both veg-tanned English Bridle. They won't require much oiling as long as they're used regularly.
The Natural is a straight vegetable tannage; I oil all pieces before assembling so they're ready to be used right away! It could do with some coconut oil here and there to help the patina darken. Keep in mind: the natural will darken as you use it! It will not be pink forever!
Everything here is done by hand, including the sewing — all wallets are sewing machine free. I saddle stitch by hand, using two needles on either end of a thread. Thread is a European flat poly braid. Haven't seen a poly stitch break yet, but I'm happy to resew if you pop a stitch.
All leather is US-sourced cowhide. There are finished edges on the Mahogany and Black, and a raw edge with a light burnish on the Natural.
