Waskerd

Minimalist Leather Wallets Made in America

Norfolk, Virginia · 393 Sales

Announcement   Free Shipping & Returns in the USA. Flat $10.00 for International Shipping.
Note: We cannot accept returns for personalized or used items.

Waskerd goods are sewn 100% by hand with a needle and thread--resulting in extremely durable leather goods--much stronger than goods made with a sewing machine. And we make everything right here in Norfolk, Virginia.

Featured in Esquire and Philadelphia Weekly!

We use only the highest quality full-grain cow leather and polyester thread. Our leather has not been shaved down to look uniform. It often has barbed-wire scratches, brands, insect bites, and other small imperfections. Each piece is constructed with an eye to incorporate these one-of-a-kind characteristics into the finished product. Also, we choose unfinished leather without an artificial sheen because we love the way that it wears. After a couple months of use, the unfinished full-grain leather will develop a rich patina, heightening its unique attributes.

Because every detail has been carefully crafted, we stand behind our minimalist wallets, leather bags, and accessories and guarantee that you'll love your purchases. If you don't love your Waskerd purchase, we will make it right—by either giving you another product or by giving you your money back.

I battled with the idea of setting up my Etsy store for 4 years. Don't be like me. Start where you are, do the hard work, define your own success, go after it, and celebrate the small successes along the way. Here's to the next 100 5-star reviews.
Stitching is red,
or it can be blue;
I gift you this wallet,
made just for you.

About

Your Small American Town Leathersmith

Our parents and grandparents grew up in a time when they knew how the products they used were made, and where they came from. Although you may not be able to walk down the street to speak with the town leathersmith anymore, Waskerd's goal is to bring back as much of that personal experience as possible.

Waskerd is a small-scale, family run business bringing a personal touch to our impersonal lives. All of our products are handsewn in the USA, with American hides and thread. From our 100% hand-stitched products with our handsewn logo, to our leather business cards and personalized notes, to the gift boxes or dust bags our goods are presented in, we have given personal attention to every aspect of our business.

Wallets and bags are very personal items. We hope the care we put into them makes the experience of using them even richer.

We love what we do, and we hope that shines through our work. Thanks for supporting the small craftsmen!
