We always love improving - small material improvements, better design, more useful functionality. The Passport Case is the updated version of our Field Notes Cover - at a better price than ever. We added two credit card pockets on the left side - now making this a perfect travel wallet. You can safely tuck a passport in behind them, and have a Field Notes in there as well.
These passport wallets are cut and sewn in our shop in California. We use a natural thread on these items - the contrast stands out nicely against the rich leather, and will continue to look better as it ages.
Starting with the absolute best material is the way we approach all our products and the passport case is no exception. For leather, that means Horween. We use their product a lot, but we wanted to find something extra special this time. We found it in the company’s Dublin line. Dublin leather is the result of an experiment where Horween asked themselves, “What if we take a top quality cowhide and tan it with the same liquor we use to tan Shell Cordovan?" The result is a beautiful, durable leather that has particularly rich coloring. For these we're using the English Tan color. It’s an orange-brown shade that has tremendous highs and lows. It ages beautifully as the oils in the leather get rubbed and displaced resulting in slightly lighter patches to give this passport case some visual complexity. It’s truly a thing of beauty.
