The Vegetable Tan card case is cut from a beautiful, European vegetable-tanned leather that's made with a traditional process in Italy or France. This leather quickly acquires a patina for a gorgeous, timeless look.

"Vegetable Tan" isn't a color so much as a process. The leather is tanned with tree bark and other organic matter. But the tannery doesn't dye it or oil it (unlike all of the other types of leather we keep in stock at the KMM & Co. studio). The result is a uniquely light-colored leather that puts the hide's natural grain on full display.

One of the most beloved qualities of vegetable-tanned leather is the dramatic patina it acquires when you expose it to sunlight, the oils in your hands, and even the dye in your jeans. The Vegetable Tan card case will age beautifully with wear. 

Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch, your wallet may be a slightly different color than the one pictured. Vegetable tan leather comes in a wide array of shades, and color variance between dye lots is a completely normal feature of this type of leather.

Some wallets are too big. Others are too small. But the KMM & Co. card case is just right -- substantial enough to accommodate the cards and cash you need on a daily basis, but small enough to fit comfortably in your pocket. (Even your front pocket!)

Sleek and streamlined, the card case can go anywhere with you. It’s one of our favorite wallets for showing off the grain, finish, or pull-up of a particularly beautiful leather. In fact, the leather is the first thing you notice about this classic design. And it’ll only get better as you use and abuse it, as the wallet wears in and becomes a truly one-of-a-kind piece.

The card case is cut and stitched by hand in our Atlanta studio. It’s sewn together with an incredibly durable saddle stitch, which just requires two needles, some premium thread, and a steady hand. Sometimes, simple really is best.
