A sleek profile on a modern design. This wallet features a solid brass Riri Zipper fitted central pocket and two additional external pockets.

  • Dimensions: 5" W x 3" H x 0.5" D

  • Color: Chestnut exterior x Chestnut interior x Brown stitching x White zipper tape. Brass accents.

  • Materials: U.S. sourced vegetable tanned steer hide, solid brass hardware.

About the 52 Zip-Up Project.

This is a project that explores the idea of individual style. A standard from was chosen and each week I will make a different style of that form that will explore currying methods, hand dyeing techniques, and material selection. By isolating the variable of form I will be able to explore what defines Wright and Rede's style. The result will be 52 unique wallets produced over a year's time. The profits of which will be donated to the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center.

About the Sgraffito Collection

Sgraffito: a form of decoration made by scratching through the surface to reveal of lower layer of contrasting color. ⠀

Normally done on ceramics to reveal a glaze underneath the surface glaze. 

I’ve accomplished the same effect by carefully scratching the leather prior to dyeing it. The scratched surface absorbs more dye resulting in a dark line similar to an ink line.
