INSIGHTS

The quintessential year-round wallet with a pocket-friendly profile and quick-draw access. Made from 100% merino wool, incredibly soft yet sturdy in construction, hand-dyed using black tea. Hand-stitched in Prague.


↗ This piece is manufactured from post-soviet wool that we saved from decommissioned wool processing factory in Kyrgyzstan. Read more about this material story.

FEATURES

This super soft material is made from a mixture of virgin and pre-consumer merino wool, which helps diversify our material sources and gives fibers a second life by repurposing unused waste.

Wool is a delicate natural fiber; it’s sometimes prone to pilling after use. Occurring in areas exposed to friction, which causes the shorter fibers to lift out of the surface. Pilling can easily be removed by running a pilling comb over the area.
