You don't need cheap gimmicks to make your wallet useful. We designed the Claude wallet to be functional without sacrificing durability or aesthetic. 

 

  • Quick draw pocket for your most used card.
  • Large back pocket to hold 2-6 cards and cash and will stretch for more.
  • Optional key loop to keep all your personals in one small package.
  • Ultra slim profile (.187") to reduce pocket bulk.
  • Heat pressed logo ensures the logo won't wear off with use.
  • Functional contours for easy access to your cards
  • Clean styling that won't look out of place in any situation.
  • Heirloom quality so your wallet will last for generations.

 

Remove the front card with one hand or stash a few bills in front for easy access. Store your less frequently used cards in the back pocket and easily push them up to search through them.

Cheap gimmicks like buttons, pull tabs, and elastics wear out and break. Leather doesn't wear out, it wears in to your particular use and lasts a lifetime.

 

 

 

The Horween Leather Company has set the standard for the highest quality leathers since 1905. All of their leather is processed at their location on the corner of Elston and Ashland in Chicago, Illinois.

The leather we use is extremely dense making it 2x thinner and stronger than the leather used by other companies. Because of these unique properties we have no need for fabric backers that fray and tear.

Our wallet is more durable and has a slimmer profile so it doesn't feel like you are sitting on a phone book.

 Fine leather ages more naturally and takes on a beautiful patina that is 100% unique to you.

 

 

 

While most of the business world seeks to produce things faster, we seek to produce things better. With hand sewn leather you get a one of a kind, quality product that will stand the test of time

Though slower, hand sewing is superior to machine sewing. Hand sewing will not unravel if one loop is broken.

 

Leather sewing machines commonly use the "lock stitch". If just one loop of a lock stitch is broken, the other side will automatically be loosened, often this process of unraveling will continue until the entire product is ruined. 

Ritza or "Tiger" thread is world renowned for its abrasion resistance. Unlike cotton thread used in most wallets, Ritza thread will not rot ensuring your wallet will withstand the elements and pocket moisture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We stand 100% behind the products we make. We warranties our leather products to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of 2 years.

Left to Right (Claude Jr., Claude Sr., Ellis)
Left to Right (Claude Jr., Claude Sr., Ellis)

Above is an image of my Grandpa Claude and my Great Grandpa Claude who were both leather workers. The techniques and disciplines they used were passed down through the generations to me. During my childhood summers, I worked with my Grandpa Claude; he taught me the importance of quality work. He introduced me to leather working at a young age, and I developed an appreciation for it through our projects. Years later I came to the realization that the leather trade was dying and with it handmade quality due to the ease of foreign mass production. I decided to use the lessons and principles I had learned to make quality products and share them with others.

 

  • October 13 - Campaign Launch
  • October 20- Production Begins
  • November 26- Campaign End
  • November 30- Everything Ships

 

Rose Anvil was born from 3 generations of leather workers, artists, and makers. We take pride in everything we make and consider each piece an extension of who we are. Quality craftsmanship is something that is passed down from generation to generation. The principles, skills, and techniques passed down are what make the heart, mind, and soul of our heritage.

Risks and challenges

If the Claude wallet is funded we will doing everything we can to deliver on our promised deadlines. We have our suppliers lined up and our materials pre-ordered and ready to ship. We do not see any reason we will not meet our Christmas deadline.

Quality is important to us we have taken every precaution to ensure our product quality will not diminish due to order size and deadline.

Leather is a natural material that will vary slightly in color and texture. All of our products are handmade and will have small differences and characteristics that make your wallet 100% unique.
