According to "The Online Resource for 1947-Current Chevy and GMC Trucks", 67-72ChevyTrucks.com, this beautiful, highly vintage black embossed grey vinyl was originally intended to upholster 1960 GMC Trucks. That's 50 year old vinyl dude!! Senior Enthusiast "markeb01" has nearly 3000 posts on this forum and posted the below image explaining this is what the "original vinyl upholstery fabric looks like". We've also recently seen in similar year Ford Trucks and Vans.
The best thing is you don't even need to know where it's from to absolutely love this pattern and texture which is as amazing as the vinyl is vintage and old and rare. The Navajo style vibe has a beautiful symmetric chevron style pattern, and this thicker vintage vinyl looks brilliant as the flap folds over and snaps to the other side of the wallet. After a few weeks in your pocket this vinyl stretches just a bit "settles in" like it would on the bench of one of those old trucks and just feels great......and lasts forever.
We make these by personally hand cutting each pattern out with a 16 ton die cutter, and then hand silk-screening a Couch logo pattern on the inside, leaving it unlined for a slimmer profile. There are enough pockets to hold at least 12 credit cards or ID's, plus a full billfold area inside for bills reciepts checks etc. The wallet closes securely with a parallel spring snap and you're ready for action.
