Celtic design, hand carved, and hand tooled into quality veg tanned leather. This piece of functional art can be used as a checkbook cover or oversize wallet. I hand dyed the leather and polished with an antique finish so the color wont wear off like a painted leather. The dye fully saturates into the leather for a permanent color bond. This type of leather takes a while to break in, and will develop a rich patina over time and use. The interior has one pocket on each side that are laced to the exterior, I used 1/8 inch quality leather lace to hand lace the entire edge using a double loop stitch to withstand years of use and abuse. I am sure you will enjoy this piece!
