Favorite Women’s Leather Wallets, Forever
When you buy a women’s leather wallet, you probably spend little, if any, time worrying about when it’s going to wear out on you. We’re so accustomed to consumer goods that reach the end of their useful life sooner than we want them to.
We have a revelation. When you choose Duvall, your favorite leather wallet gets worn in, not worn out.
To make the finest women’s leather wallet, we start with timeless shapes and proven craftsmanship. Next, we pick durable, beautiful leather and fine hardware. The way you shape it and assemble and finish it makes all the difference between a women’s leather wallet that fails and splits apart after six months, or one that looks and feels better with time.
More components give you more possible points of failure. With that in mind, Duvall’s collection of women’s leather wallets are stunning for their simplicity.
Each one has the same collapsing accordion folds, solid metal snap and inside zippered coin pouch. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, someone said once. But variety is the spice of life, after all, so you can find variation in the colors. Like the Space Blue Leather Women’s Leather Wallet, with sophisticated midnight blue leather and orange leather accents. For something more sultry and sumptuous, the Red Merlot Leather Women’s Wallet or the Sangria Purple & Black Leather Women’s Wallet blend rich dyed leather with black leather trim.
Premium Leather Makes Premium Wallets
When crafting lasting women’s leather wallets, we start with the best full grain leather we can find from our trusted suppliers. When quality materials go first, everything after that comes easier. Starting with the best leather sets the tone for all the steps after that. At Duvall, we all hold a deep respect for quality materials. We think quality leather demands to be treated that way, so we take extra care when cutting, assembling, sewing and finishing our women’s leather wallets.
For starters, we use only the best full grain, genuine leather. These leathers may come from tanneries and suppliers all over the world, but they all go through the same rigorous review process to ensure quality and lasting style. Like all of our products, Duvall’s women’s leather wallets are designed and handcrafted in the U.S., in our Northeast Pennsylvania workshop.
From 20 plus years of experience in the leather goods industry, designer & craftsman Nick Duvall has developed Duvall Leatherwork’s signature look and reputation for quality. He knows how leather twists and folds. He knows how it ages and how to reinforce wear points so that users get the most use and life out of each piece.
That knowledge Mr. Duvall has come from over 200,000 plus hours of professionally working with leather. But crafting stunning personal accessories also takes an innate knack and an artistic eye. The crafters at Duvall Leatherwork have both — experience working with one of the most durable, useful materials of all time and an appreciation for what makes beautiful leather goods.
The Leather Wallet Break-in Period
If you’ve never felt brand new, quality leather goods, the first time could be a little strange. New leather feels surprisingly stiff and rigid. That’s because it needs to break in. The leather break-in period is the part where you make your leather belt, bag or wallet your own. This is the part where the story begins. Depending on how you use it, your leather bag might achieve a soft, supple and flexible feel in a month or two. If you don’t use it so often, your bag might hold that stiffer feel for much longer. There are ways to speed up this process, but honestly, time and regular use do a pretty good job. Over time, you’ll get to know your leather goods. You’ll learn to appreciate that responsive, graceful aging process.
Premium leather in wallets (especially traditional colors) develops an unmistakable worn shine over time. There’s nothing quite like it. It gets soft, smooth and flexible, while still performing just as good as it did the day you brought it home.
