I’ve admired the Wild Child Wallet for some time now. This is a collaboration between Kiya Babzani of Self-Edge and Samuele de Goede and executed by the sterling leather craftsmen of The Flat Head.
When Kiya offered this item to Rivet & Hide I didn’t need to give the idea any consideration. This is one special wallet.
The Wild Child wallets are mainly made of harness leather cowhide, but the darker, centre part on the spine is cordovan, so you can get a nice idea of the contrast between how the two leather types feel and age. It has a silver ring in the middle and card slots inside. It looks thick when new but flattens out nicely with time. It’s a simple, classic-styled wallet that will last for many years of constant use.
Despite its classic style is has a huge amount of storage, like a biker wallet does, with lots of space for cards and bills. The cordovan part is made from Shinki leather. Shinki is one of only two tanneries in the world that can make cordovan leather. It has a smooth, glossy feel and requires very little maintenance.
