The Vegetable Tan slim card wallet is one of the sleekest wallets in the KMM & Co. lineup. But don't let its modern silhouette fool you: This 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. The Vegetable Tan slim card 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.
Here at KMM & Co., we love generously-sized leather goods. We go starry-eyed over antique leather trunks and drool over vintage travel bags. But we've also learned that you don’t have to be a secret agent to occasionally want accessories that can pull off stealth mode, too.
Our slim card wallet has the slimmest profile out of all of the wallets in the KMM & Co. lineup. This style was lovingly designed for the minimalist. All the adornment it needs is the indestructible saddle stitch that holds it all together.
This wallet keeps things simple with one pocket and two card slots. It can accommodate up to six cards and some cash. The slim card wallet is the perfect companion for days when you want to travel light and carry your essentials in your pocket. But the streamlined design also makes it perfect for tucking inside a bigger piece, like a tote bag. Go ahead and double up -- we won’t judge you.

I got this wallet for my ~girlfriend~, Sam... and let me tell you what, she LOVES it. She is so excited to abandon that clunky giant wallet she used to have, and now proudly carries this sleek Vegetable Tan Slim Card Wallet everywhere. And let me just rant about Vegetable Tan for a hot sec. It's everything you need. The leather itself, I've found, is slightly more stiff than a more tanned leather. It comes to you as a blank canvas. Every time you pull this beauty out of your pocket, the oil on your fingers will kiss the surface ever so delicately. Over time your wallet will begin to tell a story. A story of all your mall trips and late night bar hops. A story of credit card swipes and ID checks. A story of you and your well-patina'd wallet. After years of building a relationship with your wallet, you'll find it to be a dark beautiful tan... all by your own doing. You need this wallet. And you need it in Vegetable Tan. Also, it may feel tight to fit your cards in at first. But the leather will slowly soften over time and fit those cards nicely.
