The Vermilyea Pelle Bifold Wallet design is a sleek, minimalist bifold based around two interior sideload card pockets.

Horween Shell Cordovan stamp on the interior of the wallet. Shell Cordovan is taken from a particular part of a horsehide, the irregular oval shaped shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished – a process taking at least six months. Each shell is slowly steeped in gentle vegetable liquors. The shells are genuine hot stuffed then slicked onto glass frames to dry. Each shell is hand curried and shaved by highly skilled artisans to expose the shell. Dyes are hand rubbed on for a deep aniline finish. Finally, the shells are hand glazed to achieve the rich, glossy look and feel prized by fine craftsmen.
