This Wallet by American Bench Craft is constructed from a single piece of rugged, full grain leather, die-cut from one of our vegetable-tanned Steer hides. We fold the leather and secure the wallet using metal rivets, NO THREAD STITCHING. Finally, we stamp and finish the wallet using simple hand tools for an entirely handcrafted product, proudly Made-in-the-USA.
The two front pockets are designed for quick-access use and should be designated for items you use frequently. These pockets are meant to hold 2 – 4 credit or ID cards each. Do NOT overstuff the quick access pockets, as the leather will mold around the additional items and result in an insecure fit. The two inside pockets will hold 8-10 business cards, a wad of cash folded once and/or any additional cards you cannot part with.
Our wallet’s minimalist design is aimed to help men simplify their lives and reduce clutter. The fewer items you carry, the slimmer and sleeker your wallet will be.
Your leather wallet will arrive stiff and rigid, similar to a new baseball glove or pair of quality leather shoes. Vegetable tanned leather is completely all-natural and is meant to break in over time, improve with age, become more supple with use and develop a unique and beautiful patina that is entirely your own.
Additionally, vegetable-tanned leather is environmentally friendly, requires skilled craftsmen to produce and dye, and smells like leather, not chemicals. All of this ensures our wallets are of the highest quality and will not wear away with age or use.
Both thread stitching and metal rivets offer strong holds. However, we’ve found rivets hold up better against the heat and friction that result from constantly pulling your wallet out of your pocket and putting it back in. Over time, heat and friction fray thread which is why many wallets ultimately fall apart. Heat and friction simply polish metal; making rivets a unique, strong and attractive alternative to thread stitching.
Simple products are more durable. Fewer parts equal less susceptibility to failure. Our single piece design concept ensures our wallet’s long lasting strength and durability.
Upon close inspection, you’ll notice subtle scars, brands and marks that ensure your wallet was made from full grain leather. Hides are split into numerous layers; however, each hide has only one Full Grain layer. The Full Grain layer is the very top of the hide, and is the most sought after cut because it is the strongest layer and develops a unique and beautiful patina, which allows the leather to improve with age and use.
The subtle imperfections characteristic of full grain leather ensure the authenticity of your wallet, and that a completely all-natural and unaltered material was used in its construction, making your wallet incredibly durable and one-of-a-kind.

What can I say this is the perfect gift for anyone that appreciates a minimalist design with quality materials. What I like best about this wallet is its one piece leather design and riveted construction. No thread to wear out or fall apart. I still have my original purchase and this one went to a friend.

I had a brown Hammer Riveted Wallet I was using and I liked it so much I decided to order another one for a back up. I watched a video on the wallet and saw how sharp it looked in black and had an idea of how to customize it so I asked if they could do it. They responded with in a short time and said yes so I ordered it and I received it in record time. It's my every day carry now and is the first black wallet I've ever owned.

I've been looking for this wallet for years. Couldn't be more perfect. No horrible plastic windows that will crack after a few years, no stitching to fall apart, nice thick leather and big enough to fit all my cards + cash.
