Looking for more ways to trap dust and lint in the folds of your leather wallet? Check out these Shell Cordovan Basket Weave Card Cases made by First Settlement Goods. You probably won’t trap so much debris in these folds that a horsehair brush won’t remove, but the basket weave does provide a more unique texture than your average wallet.
Made and woven by hand in Wisconsin using Horween Shell Cordovan, the weave takes the so-called king of leather down to a more casual level. They come in a variety of rare shell cordovan colorways like Color 4, Whiskey, and Natural. But the real star is the ‘Blackwatch’ colorway, a mix of several colors to make up a sort of blackwatch pattern. If you manage to take your gaze off the mesmerizing weave and get around to checking out the other details of these wallets, you’ll find natural French calfskin front pockets (two up front and one in the middle) as well as shaved and burnished edges for a clean look.
