About Werner Manuel
When I was looking for a new wallet a few years ago, I couldn't find what I was looking for. All I could find were wallets made out of split leather with way too many pockets, cheap lining that will eventually come loose and machine stitched threads that are likely to come undone within a year. When I was younger, I made my wallets out of duct tape, and I decided to make my own wallet again. This time, it was time for a Grown Up wallet. I loved making them and friends, family and colleagues wanted to buy them from me. So here I am now, after some years of practice, presenting my wallets online for you to purchase!
The wallets that I make for you are made completely by hand. I have designed, tested and redesigned my wallets to get a minimalist, functional and safe product made out of raw, vegetable tanned full-grain leather and strong, saddle stitched thread. I take great pride in the quality and craftmanship of my products. These wallets will last you for years and years.
When you receive your wallet it will feel a little sturdy, but soon enough it will shape to its content and your pocket. The leather will age beautifully, it will become more supple and softer, and its color will become deeper and darker over time.
I have put up pictures of various designs, but I think your wallet should be a reflection of your personality. Some people like to carry coins, some don't. Some people only carry cards and no cash, others like to have cash. When you order a model you like, you can select your preferred color of leather and stitching. Each wallet is then made to order. If you have any feedback on the designs or if you would like me to design a custom wallet specially for you, please send me an e-mail or contact me through my Etsy Shop.
