The item did not ship on time, took much longer than expected. However, it is so absolutely beautiful, and definitely worth the wait!

I got this as a Chanuka present for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved it. Great quality and excellent customer service. Would definitely purchase from Ellen again. She even sent progress updates with pictures as she worked on the wallet and rushed to get it here on time. Nothing but positive experiences with this one!

Amazing quality- so much better than the photo in person. I was a little worried this would not arrive in time for Christmas, so I was the crazy customer that called to ask about my order. Ellen was amazing-she answered all my questions and was completely on top of things. To any other crazy customers out there: relax, Ellen's got this!

Beautiful craftsmanship, and the communication with Ellen was great. I bought the wallet as a birthday present for my man, personalised with his own geeky gaming symbol, and he loved it. Highly recommend!

Frequently asked questions
Lightly coat with olive oil every 3-4 months. This keeps the leather from drying out and makes it last much longer.
Custom and personalized orders
Q: Can I get a different image on your stuff?
A: You sure can. Just attach the picture in a convo or email it to me at email@example.com
Q: How much does a different picture cost?
A: If it is something with quite a bit of detail it can cost up to $15 more per image. If it is a pretty simple image like a symbol, it is free of charge.
Q: Do you do monogramming and how much is it?
A: Yes I sure do. Cost is determined by the number of letters. If it is just initials, or a short message (10 letters) it's free. Longer messages will be an extra $5.
How can I tell the difference between embossed leather and hand tooled leather?
*Embossing is done by taking a metal plate with an image on it and pressing it with a lot of force onto a piece of damp leather. The leather dries and holds the shape or image.
*Tooling or carving is actually cutting into the leather and sculpting it with a variety of tools (swivel knife, beveler, seeder, mule foot, pear shader, etc). It is a much more labor intensive process, requiring an artisan's eye and experience to produce a favorable result.
*You can tell the difference between embossing and carving by closely examining the indentation around the image. If you see pattern marks (waffle,crosshatch), or a darker, burnished appearance, then it's probably handmade. Also, look for little tells like scuffs or slight variations.
What is the difference between the soft lined wallet and the veg tan lined wallet?
The soft lined wallet is made of pigskin which has a more cloth like feel. It can hold up to 12 cards and has 2 compartments for cash. It takes more time to make this type of lining than the veg tanned one so it costs a bit more.
The veg tan lined wallet's interior is cowhide which is stiffer. It holds 4 - 8 credit cards (8 will be a squeeze until the leather stretches) and does not have the extra divider in the cash pocket and costs less.
