“The wallet is where it all began. It was the first product I designed and where the search within my materials to find dorment function started. However, to activate this dormant function I needed to develop a fusion of new and old construction techniques.

 

Typically only thin layers of leather are used in wallet design. This means that the stitching has nowhere to sit but on the surface of the leather, leaving the thread exposed to abrasion. To protect the stitching in the Farrah wallet I used a thick external layer of leather that has a channel tooled into it. When the stitching is laid into this channel, it is completely protected. The thick external layer of leather now introduced a substantial stiffness and ridgity to the spine of the wallet. This newfound stiffness is turned into functionality by the design of the money clip. Typically, wallets of this style incorporate a vertical seam along the spine to create a sleeve to accomodate the money clip. The Farrah money clip however is made from a single piece of spring stainless steel and is woven through the rigid spine of the wallet and wet molded into position. Now instead of the leather being compromised by an additional seam to accomodate the money clip, the leather and the money clip work in unison to achieve the function required.

 

The wallets interior is made from Kangaroo leather, the strongest for its weight in the world. This has been used not only for its strength but also for its suppleness. By having a stiff, thick exterior the softer kangaroo hide interior becomes reactive to the contents of the wallet, when cards are inserted into the wallet the softer leather billows inwards ensuring that the interior seams remain separated and don’t cause abrasion.”

    I don’t remember how long I’ve had my wallet now. It’s been a while. I love its simple nature and now I love how it’s ageing. Top piece of kit that’ll stop you keeping a million useless receipts.

    I purchased my hand stitched Farrah wallet close to 3 years ago and it has been the perfect companion ever since. The leather has aged beautifully and is a constant conversation starter. Function and style all in one! You won’t be disappointed.

    I bought one of the original wallets over 5 years ago, and have loved the wallet since day one. Its minimalist design matched my needs perfectly. I wanted a wallet that had minimal bulk, and carried only the necessary items – cards and $$$ notes. After more than 5 years I can say that the wallet has only improved with age. The leather has taken on a deeper, richer look over the years, and the leather inner and metal clip haven’t skipped a beat. I can’t see me buying another wallet for a long time yet.

    Unbelievable, the only wallet you will ever buy. As the other reviews say this product ages beautifully. It’s a good feeling to own such a long lasting, quality piece of kit, I previously went through roughly a wallet a year. My Farrah was passed on to me buy Tom, three years ago after having traveled in his pocket for who knows how long before that, It seems to have not aged at all since I’ve had it. I slap a little dubbin on it every now and then a it comes up mint!
