The flap wallet is an iconic KMM & Co. design. This one 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 flap wallet will age beautifully with wear. It's perfect for someone who wants a wallet that will show where it's been through years of use.
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.
A wallet goes with you everywhere, from your local grocery store to your most distant travel destination. So the ideal wallet should probably be both beautiful and functional, with enough space for all your essentials, no matter how far from home you go.
The flap wallet is a KMM & Co. classic, one that we’ve updated with an extra pocket on the back for your most frequently-used essentials. All-told, this wallet has enough space for about 15 cards and some cash. Plus, it’s cut, sewn, and burnished by hand in our Atlanta studio to ensure that each one is absolutely perfect.
If you’ve been searching for a wallet that you can keep forever -- one that will never fall apart -- then the flap wallet is for you. It’s simple and functional, and built to last a lifetime. This wallet is in it for the long haul if you are.

I had these monogrammed for my bridesmaids, and they were a hit! I have one myself so I also know that they are super well-made and high quality leather.
