A minimal card wallet made for modern needs. Nowadays we don't need to carry around cash and coins, all you need is a bank card, ID, public transport card and maybe a few others. The slim design makes it the perfect wallet to carry in your pocket or bag, even the mini ones.
This card wallet has 3 card slots: one larger one (which can fit cash if you really need it) and 2 normal slots for your cards. It fits at least 6 cards, and once you've used it for a while and the leather softens, it can fit even more.
Wipe the leather with a dry cloth (only use a damp cloth if completely necessary)
Apply a natural leather balm regularly (every few weeks if you use the bag daily). If the weather forecast shows rain or snow, we recommend to treat your bag with leather balm to give your bag extra protection. Check out our leather balm for detailed instructions on how to treat your bag.
If your bag gets wet, let it air dry. Wait until it is fully dry before applying a leather balm or wax.
If you bag gets a scratch or scuff, apply leather balm as soon as possible. But don’t panic, scratches and scuffs tell a story and will gradually wear in over time.
The exterior of this bag is handcrafted from premium burgundy vegetable tanned cow leather, which is the most sustainable option of real leather available on the market. It is extremely durable, gets better and more supple with age, creating a beautiful patina over time. The paints and glues used are non-toxic and not harmful to the environment.
At Karu Atelier we use traditional leathercraft techniques and hand stitch all of our bags and accessories. We use locally sourced materials and hardware. We use almost no machines which means we can limit the amount of energy we use and Co2 we produce. We make most items to order to prevent deadstock and waste. These factors make our production line as sustainable as possible.
