Riveted Cardholder
The Riveted Leather Cardholder by American Bench Craft has two pockets and is the perfect accessory for carrying a few cards and cash wherever you go. It’s stylish yet durable design is ideal for formal events, a night out on the town, or traveling. It will easily fit inside a suit jacket pocket for formal occasions, a front pants pocket for safeguard while traveling or athletic clothing without the bulky bulge of your regular wallet. Its design also makes for a unique addition to any women’s purse or clutch making our cardholder as versatile as it is elegant. The Riveted Leather Cardholder will comfortably hold up to five credit or ID cards and 5 cash bills folded into thirds while maintaining a sleek and slim profile. It is the perfect solution for when you are headed out and don’t need all the contents from your regular wallet. Do NOT overstuff this Cardholder as the leather will mold around the additional items and result in an unsecure fit. This Cardholder is constructed from a single piece of full grain leather, die-cut from one of our beautiful, vegetable-tanned hides. We fold the leather and secure the cardholder using metal rivets, NO THREAD STITCHING. Finally, we stamp and finish the Cardholder using simple hand tools for an entirely handcrafted product, proudly Made-in-the-USA. Why Vegetable-Tanned Leather? Vegetable-tanned leather is meant to break in over time and become more supple with age and use. We use only vegetable-tanned leather because it is completely all-natural and develops a unique and beautiful patina that is entirely your own. Additionally, vegetable-tanned leather is environmentally friendly, requires skilled craftsmen to produce and dye, and smells like leather, not chemicals. All of this ensures our cardholders are of the highest quality and will not wear away with age or use. Why Metal Rivets instead of Thread Stitching? Both thread stitching and metal rivets offer strong holds. However, we’ve found rivets hold up better against the heat and friction from carrying and using your cardholder every day. Over time, heat and friction fray thread and your cardholder will ultimately fall apart. Heat and friction simply polish metal; making rivets a unique, strong and attractive alternative to thread stitching. Why a Single Piece of Leather? Simple products are more durable. Fewer parts equal less susceptibility to failure. Our single piece design concept ensures our cardholder’s strength, durability, and that it will last for years to come without falling apart. How can you tell our Leather is Full Grain? Upon close inspection, you’ll notice subtle scars, brands and marks that ensure your cardholder was made from full grain leather. Hides are split into numerous layers; however, each hide has only one Full Grain layer. The Full Grain layer is the very top of the hide, and is the most sought after cut because it is the strongest layer and develops a unique and beautiful patina, which allows the leather to improve with age and use. The subtle imperfections characteristic of full grain leather ensure the authenticity of your cardholder, and that a completely all-natural and unaltered material was used in its construction, making your cardholder incredibly durable and one-of-a-kind.
