Our calf leather and exotic leather wallets are a re-interpretation of the classic bi-fold wallet. All CREEL wallets are handmade to the highest standard, with exceptional skill and care using the finest full-grain calf leather with salmon leather and zander fish leathers for the wallet interiors along with alternative eco-exotic leathers such as the karung water-snake. Fish leather is not only very soft and strong but takes dye very well allowing for both vibrant and natural shades. Fish leather once tanned can be glazed for a smoother finish or left with a more suede like textured finish – for our first collections we have favoured the more vibrant shades with a glazed finish to contrast beautifully with the smooth full-grain calf leather and iridescent shot silks. Although we have included some more natural shades to ensure we have a wallet to suit a broad range of personal tastes. Each wallet features six card slots, two hidden slip pockets and two cash sleeves.
A well-made wallet is a very personal and must-have item for any gentleman. It’s something we carry and use on a daily basis. The individuality and understated luxury a CREEL wallet makes it something you will enjoy and take personal satisfaction in every day. CREEL prides itself in using highly skilled traditional craftsmanship to ensure your CREEL wallet will serve you faithfully for many years. We take great care to source and personally select the ﬁnest materials to create lasting pieces that will age beautifully over time. For our calf leather wallet exteriors we use only full-grain calf leather. The soft fine grain is highly durable and ages wonderfully as it takes on a natural patina. The best things in life improve over time.
The silk linings of CREEL wallets provide an aspect of discreet luxury, akin to the flamboyant lining of a tailor made classic suit, but also serve an important function: strength and durability. The lining of a wallet is effectively its skeleton. Silk is among the strongest of all natural fibres and the pure silk linings of our wallets give them exceptional core strength and durability. “Form follows function” is a design principle followed by CREEL and a hallmark of the best classic British designs.
