Leather Zip Wallet by Anchor Bridge and Roberu

By Anchor Bridge Roberu 

This Zip Wallet (¥6,825Prices are approximate only and subject to change.
White Rabbit Express service fee and other costs not included.
) combines the shoemaking skills of Anchor Bridge and the leather craftsmanship of Roberu—two of Japan’s great leather craft houses. The wallet puts functionality first and high-quality materials and construction a close second. Anchor Bridge’s motto is to strictly “only include the essential elements,” and the wallet keeps things simple with a smooth zip running around the edge and a pocket sewn into the inside to store bills or cards.

What really sets this zip wallet apart (as with other Roberu goods), is the leather. Roberu has chosen to use Cordovan leather from a prestigious American tannery. Cordovan is horse leather from a specific part of its hind-quarters, which is then treated and polished for six months—the old fashioned way. Dyes and glazes are rubbed in by hand to hold the original texture of the leather, which these two brands love to display. This is a wallet which is meant to be used, and used well.

Materials: Cordovan Horse Leather
