Here is our popular Regal billfold offered in Legendary Hermann Oak leather. This leather is world renowned for it's aging and wear properties as well as the amazing patina it develops with use.

Here are some words about this beautiful leather from our supplier:

"Since 1881, Hermann Oak has been tanning top-grain leather right here in Missouri. St. Louis-based, the company prides itself on its slow and careful tanning process. A process that produces the finest top-grain stamping and tooling leather in the world. The Hermann Oak name has become synonymous with high quality.
So, what makes Hermann Oak a cut above the rest? The answer starts with the tanning process. Notably, Hermann Oak vegetable tans its leather using a centuries-old process called Traditional Tanning. The coloring is natural, made from tree bark. Traditional Tanning works like a wood stain, preserving the natural look of the leather while adding depth to the color. Veg tan allows a leather crafter to do much more than chrome tanned leather. From tooling and stamping to molding, burnishing and patina, there are a variety of options.This time-honored method is especially great because of its influence on quality.

While this process is labor intensive and more expensive than other tanning methods, it produces leather that is dense, sturdy, holds its shape and is light-weight after oiling. While leather comes in many different grades, the quality is all about the tanning process. Hermann Oak's use of the pressed-yard traditional tanning method makes the quality of all of its pieces exactly the same. Hermann Oak's commitment to quality is exactly what has made it a household name for over a century! Many businesses use exclusively Hermann Oak leather because of its reliability and reputation."

This billfold also features beautiful Acadia leather inside with 4 dedicated card pockets and a space for unfolded cash. We recommend carrying 6-8 cards in this billfold.

Every step has been done entirely by hand, this billfold is saddle stitched with Maine waxed cord. The edges have been burnished and sealed for a smooth, firm, and durable edge. This heirloom piece will age amazingly.

Proudly made in the USA.
