7 Reasons Why Leather is the Best Material for a Wallet

We use leather for everything, shoes, couches, iPhone cases and even pants. Why do we use leather in so many products? Well, it comes down to what we had available at any given time. We have been eating animals since the dawn of time and using their skins to make our wares for just as long.

It comes down to seven reasons why we think leather is the best material option when choosing a wallet. Here they are:

  1. Longevity. For something that has been around since the stone age, then if it’s not broke don’t fix it. Some of the oldest heirlooms that are passed down for generations are created using leather. Most fabric or plastic wallets start to break down after a short period of time. There are leather pieces from the 6th and 7th century that are still sitting in museums to this day. As long as leather has plenty of room to brief and the right amount of moisture, a leather wallet could easily end up in the hands of your great grandchildren.
  2. Utility. No one has ever looked at a leather wallet and said,”How does this thing work?” There are no fancy connectors or mechanisms to work your standard leather wallet. There are slots for cards, a place for cash and the clear plastic window to put your drivers license.
  3. Durability. What beating can’t a leather wallet take? Heat, Cold, Water, Dirt, Fire...maybe. Strong yet lightweight, leather can outlast just about any other fabric available. Full grain leather can last for years and years if it is regularly conditioned and cleaned. You can’t say the same for plastic, carbon fiber or a cotton-based material. Once a leather wallet is put to good use over a
  4. Texture. Have you ever sat on brand new leather car seats? Or a freshly unwrapped leather couch? So smooth and supple and don’t forget about the smell. You can have that same sensation with a leather wallet. There might be nothing better than a brand new buttery smooth tanned leather wallet. The way it slides in and out of your pocket. Even after the leather starts to age and patina, the texture only gets better as the time passes.
  5. Affordability. Luckily, leather is used in so many products that costs of a leather bifold wallet are relatively low. You can get an inexpensive authentic leather wallet for less than $50 and it will go the distance. You don’t need to break the bank to get a leather wallet that fits your needs.
  6. Choices. The wide range of animals that have skins used for tanning combined with colors, textures, and styles makes leather wallet options practically endless. You can even get leather wallets customized with a monogram or engraving to make your wallet even more one of a kind.
  7. Classic Elegance. Sleek, clean and simple is what everyone wants in a wallet. The affluent and wealthy and the everyday man are using a leather wallet. Each and every piece of leather is unique and that is what can make a wallet so exclusive to each and every person. No two pieces of leather look and feel exactly alike. You don’t need a complex wallet to show that you enjoy the finer things in life. Leather has always shown an indication of elegance and that includes the most basic leather bifold wallet.

There are endless reasons why anyone chooses a wallet. Whether they be form or function, the use of leather will prolong the life of any wallet and is easily the most dependable and affordable option.
