These lovely coin pouches are made from the world famous Badalassi Pueblo Leather; they are soft and slim so fit perfectly in your pocket and in the palm of your hand.
Each purse is completely handmade; cut from large hides, each edge is beveled, then dyed and polished by hand in my workshop in Leicestshire. To finish each item I use the traditional method of saddle stitching to give a rustic but stylish finish. Leather is one of the few things that looks better with age! Over time, your leather item will become more beautiful, developing character and patina.
Please note that the pictures are of the same purse the first three are taken immeditely after it is made and the last two gaining its rich patina with use.
These purses can be personalised with your choice of up to 4 hand stamped letters. (Of which no more than 2 letters can be the same). Because these are not machine made, the lettering may not be perfectly straight, it adds to the uniqueness of each piece. Spacing and stamp depths may also vary and should not be considered a defect.
Dimensions when open - Height 16.5cm, width at widest 8.5cm
About Pueblo Leather - Produced by the world famous Badalassi Carlo tannery, Pueblo combines ruggedness with elegance. Pure vegetable tanned, dyed through shoulders with a unique rustic appearance. Rubbing the skins with a dry cloth will burnish it brighter as well as moving the colour darker. The more you brush your leather goods and footwear products, the more ‘lived in’ look you’ll achieve. Pueblo can be treated with natural creams and waxes. The touch to begin is slightly rough on your hands, but even if untreated over the years, the surface will become silky smooth through a natural patina change.
