With space for either a notebook or a passport, KMM & Co.'s notebook wallet is one of our most versatile wallets for those who want to see the world (whether you're traveling far from home or doing some people-watching at your local coffee shop).
The Vegetable Tan notebook wallet 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. This leather 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.
This might be our best-kept secret, but life immediately becomes more interesting when you start carrying a KMM & Co. notebook wallet. After all, this wallet holds either a notebook or a passport in addition to your cards and cash. And it just stands to reason that if you’re carrying a notebook or passport, you’re probably doing something interesting or going somewhere intriguing -- even if you're just exploring your own neighborhood.
The notebook wallet is perfectly designed to fit either your passport or your favorite small notebook (we like both Field Notes and Moleskine). The wallet also features two cards slots that can hold four cards each. One large compartment can carry your cash or phone, while the other one will hold your notebook or passport.
While these wallets all start out in our Atlanta studio -- where they’re cut, sewn, and burnished by hand -- they’ve traveled all over the world with KMM & Co. customers. And the best-used notebook wallets develop a patina that tells the story of your journey. Go by road or rail, air or sea, and you can trust the notebook wallet to keep your essentials safe and sound.

This vegetable tanned leather is incredibly soft. Ive found my new favorite every day solution for bringing my essential cards with me rather than taking a full clutch. Perfect solution for my smaller tote days. Love it!
