    Started a new thread cause the leather artisan one hardly gets updated.

    Was looking at leather wallets on Etsy, and came across this:
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/104052990/minimal-leather-wallet-cash-card-holder

    His stuff looks exactly like Makr's:
    http://makr.com/round-wallet-saddle-tan

    Even the fonts appear to be the same, and the line at the bottom both have "Designed and Handcrafted." Does anyone have any idea who copied who?

    Atilier Pall says they've been around since 1955, but that doesn't necessarily mean they've been making their wallets like that since then. They're also about 1/3 the price of the Makr ones, but if they just copied Makr's stuff wholesale I'd rather not give them my business; I'd pay the premium for originality.

    Has anyone else came across this?

    Chester Mox makes the same stuff too. None of the designs are particularly novel.
