Simple, timeless, durable and essential: the KL1 keeps a clutter-free and super-slim profile, while still being a fully functional billfold wallet. Perfect to tuck into those skinny jeans, stylish mini bags or simply for those who love to travel light.
Now in 5 additional vibrant colors with matching threads: Navy Blue, Forrest Green, Deep Red, Sunflower Yellow and Mahogany Brown. The natural version is un-dyed and will develop a gorgeous patina over time, giving the leather a beautiful, aged and very personal look.
Designed, hand-dyed and 100% handcrafted in my Brooklyn studio, New York. Most products are made to order, with care and purpose.
- Approx. 3 7/8” x 3” (9,5 cm x 7,7 cm) folded, specially designed for US currency
- One main billfold compartment
- Two card slots that comfortably accommodate 2-3 cards each. Note: card slots will mold to fit over break-in period. Expect tight initial fit for security.
- Hand conditioned with beeswax and carnauba wax
I only use highest quality materials, made in the USA. From domestically produced Hermann Oak Natural Vegetable Tanned Leather to waxed nylon thread.
Every single KLNewYork product is built to last and therefore hand-sewn with a traditional saddle stitch. While it takes significantly more time to sew by hand, the resulting saddle stitch is stronger and more durable than any machine stitch, which will continue to unravel if damaged. Should one side of a saddle stitch fail, the piece is still perfectly usable and a simple repair can be made by anyone with a needle and some waxed thread.
The edges are beveled and hand-burnished with beeswax.
Leather is a natural product and color and texture will vary within every hide. Light scratches and marks are an integral part of a natural leather’s beauty.
I do my best to photograph my products. Please keep in mind that colors may appear differently on your computer screen or mobile device.
