    Notebook & Wallets

    Made these recently.
    Notebook cover for a Moleskine (9 x14 cm) with a matching "minimalist" wallet in Python skin




    This "minimalist" wallet is made from Australian Cane Toad skin. An unlikely source of a really nice, tough leather.

    You should get this stuff to Selfridge's or something (assuming you don't already )

    Fantastic workmanship, I make a few things from veg tan leather and am always curious where you source these exotic leathers from?

    These exotic skins turn up from time to time here on BB. I missed some lizard skins a few weeks ago. The Toad skins are from Australia.

    Re: Notebook & Wallets

    I can vouch for the utility of these little wallets... I used to carry a big wallet full of 'stuff' now slimmed down to a few cards and notes tucked in the front. Perfect. GeoffW saved me from a fat wallet, now more space in my pockets for knives and the likes
