The Flux wallet is designed to carry only the essential cards and cash. A single piece of vegetable tanned leather is cut by hand and wrapped around itself forming a minimalist card holder with three slim pockets. Around eight to ten cards can be stored in the main compartment, while the side pockets keep a few folded bills and your most used cards easily accessible. The rugged leather can be unforgiving at first, but it soon breaks in to a point where you would be surprised at how much it can hold. Nonetheless, it's slim profile makes it perfect for front or back pocket carry, without the bulk of a traditional wallet. Every Flux wallet is stitched and burnished by hand, and built to last.
All of the stitching is done by hand with waxed braided polyester Ritza Tiger thread, the best thread available for sewing leather. Tiger thread has a higher tensile strength than linen or animal sinew, which makes it perfect for hand stitching. It also does not change colour over time and is very resistant to oils and abrasion.
Vegetable tanned leather will develop a unique patina over time, absorbing the oils from your hands, the indigo from your jeans, and UV light from the sun. As it wears and ages, vegetable tanned leather develops a sheen in high stress areas, and darkens throughout its lifetime. The natural vegetable tanned leather option is the choice of the true leather enthusiast. It is leather in its most raw form. It has not been dyed or altered in any way, and how it will look depends entirely on you. By purchasing a natural vegetable tanned leather wallet you’re starting a patina project. Note that it can be more susceptible to stains and water marks if left untreated, but every mark in the leather tells a story about the life its owner has lived. Use it hard, give it sun exposure, occasionally give it a light coat of oil or all natural leather conditioner, and over the years it will darken to a deep rich brown.
The tan, oiled tan, and grey colour options are made from natural vegetable tanned leather that is dyed and finished in-house, whereas the burgundy colour option is made from Traditional Harness leather. I source my Harness leather from Wicket & Craig in the United States, one of the few remaining tanneries still producing vegetable tanned leather. You can learn more about different kinds of leather here. During the tanning process, an exclusive blend of nourishing waxes, oils, and tallows are hot stuffed into the leather after it is drum dyed to give it a rich concentration of color and greater durability. And through a traditional process called jack glazing, oils in the leather are brought up to the surface, creating a glossy finish that never masks the leather’s natural grain. This truly is special leather.
