Clark Minimalistic/Front-pocket Wallet
Clark Minimalistic/Front-pocket Wallet
Leather wallet by Beargrass Leather. The Beargrass Leather minimalist/front pocket wallet is sleek. Furthermore, it has to be one of the most all-USA made items that you could ever purchase. The leather is bison from a tannery in Maine. The waxed-polyester thread is from a small thread company in Maine. Even the stamps were etched in Michigan. And I make them from my shop in Montana with Glacier National Park seen from my window.
The wallet can hold up to nine credit cards and a few bills (mine currently has 13 cards and 7 bills after the break-in period). It makes for a low-bulk wallet in a back pocket or a barely there wallet in a front pocket. It is also deep enough to hold about a dozen business cards, if utilized as a business card holder. The thread is medium brown.
Perfect gift for a guy, but also works great as a card and cash holder for a women's purse. It makes a great birthday or graduation present.
Go ahead, treat yourself to this American-made beauty.

What Sets Beargrass Leather apart from other Handmade Leather Goods?
First and foremost, Beargrass Leather is unique in the technique used to stitch and lace our leather goods. Secondly, we are one of the few handmade (non-machine)leather workers that can line our bags and purses. Thirdly, Beargrass Leather can design and make hair-on-hide bags and purses. Fourth, the design elements of Beargrass Leather goods stretch far beyond basic rectangular totes and rough edge purses. Finally, our dedication to American-made goods.
Our customers understand that each product is both unique and a combination of skills not offered by the average US leatherworker.
Leather as a Natural Product:
Real, full-grain leather is a natural product. Each hide has a certain amount of “irregularities” which those in the leather business call “character.” Some hides even come with brand marks (which are awesome), nicks, bites, bumps, scars, and other awesome items of character. The tanning and dying process can also leave certain character marks. In the end, this is a sign that your leather is real, unadulterated, one of a kind, premium leather that will last for years.
Our customers know the value of American made goods; accordingly, Beargrass Leather takes great care to utilize American made products into our designs. While it is impossible to calculate hard numbers, most of our products are over 90% American made with American goods.
For example, most of our leather is from American tanneries and cows: Horween, S.B. Foot, Tasman, etc...
The bulk of our thread comes from Maine thread which crafts amazing waxed polyester thread. Our hardware is sourced from American retailers.
While it is nearly impossible to verify a truly 100% American made good, Beargrass Leather takes great pride in sourcing our materials to introduce as much high-quality, American product to our clients.
Handmade in USA:
Every Beargrass Leather is crafted by either Samantha or Benjamin in scenic Montana.
We consider a large part of hand made to include hand-stitching. Hand-stitching is more durable than sewing machine stitches. The traditional leather-working stitch is called a "saddle-stitch." Saddle makers this very day use a saddle stitch for the world's most durable saddles. Beargrass Leather uses a saddle stitch (or one of its variations). Most often, we use a decorative crossing saddle stitch. Each stitch is actually two stitches, binding against the other in unison. The standard Beargrass Leather thread is made in America and is 100% to 200% larger in diameter than most machine thread. We strive for one continuous thread per stitch run which can result in working with up to 50 feet of thread at a time (such as a gusset or strap).
For most Beargrass Leather products, we recommend Montana Pitch Blend for care and conditioning. Montana pitch blend performs two roles: conditioning and protection. The mink oil will soften the leather while the wax will help protect the leather from weather and wear. Montana Pitch Blend may darken leather, but all leather will darken over time.
Each product is tanned and dyed by the tannery. As any color or dye, it may rub off if vigorously rubbed or wetted. Over years of use, very few products have shown any rub-off of color. Nevertheless, the use of a good conditioner like Montana Pitch Blend may help. But in the meantime, use caution and pay attention.
