just finished: navy sokoto goatskin exterior, terra-cotta sokoto goatskin interior. gold edges and pigskin lining, hand-stitched in with white linen thread. 6 card slots + billfold. A great middle-ground between a cardholder and a full length wallet. $295, free shipping worldwide!
I've only just got it in. Never used it before. I'd imagine it should age similarly to any quality natural veg-tan leather. It has more 'grain' than cowhide so I think the ageing combined with the texture should make for a really cool patina.
New sokoto goatskin colours in the workshop: Purple Navy Terra-cotta orange As well as natural, undyed vegetable-tanned goatskin with a nice natural grain, for those who are sick of plain old cowhide Some dividers and card slots in the works for a couple different wallets:

Seriously. If this goes over $1500, the winner will receive a photo of me shirtless with the briefcase on my head. I will be wearing Clark's desert boots.
You rock!Potential bidders, check out this album to see how one of these (well, an alligator version) is made.A range of thread colours, edge colours, and lovely options to customize. Truly an heirloom piece that you can pass down decades from now.
Cheers, Fok.To those unfamiliar with my work, I'll share about more info about this particular bag. As Fok mentioned, the winner will have their choice of calf or goat. I use the finest French boxcalf and a variety of vegetable-tanned goatskins in a range of colours. Additionally, the interior will be fully leather lined in goat or lamb and we will be able to come up with an interior organizer to suit your needs...and as always, completely saddle-stitched by hand.
So sorry mate. The sharkskin wallet didn't turn out 100% to my liking, and I wanted to add another item (stingray cardholder), so I had to push things back a bit. I'll send you a PM when I get the giveaway thread posted up.
I don't believe this to be acceptable, but like others have noted, the bag is likely to get scuffs through regular use either way.
Tannery photo. Natural indigo dyed, vegetable-tanned alligator. I can't even imagine how nicely this will age. Wallet anyone!?
