We always love improving - small material improvements, better design, more useful functionality. This 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 beautiful leather, and will continue to look better as it ages.
For the leather, we went to The Horween Leather Company in Chicago. They have been in the leather game since 1905, and have developed some of the most durable and beautiful leathers on the market (from Shell Cordovan to the leather used for NFL footballs). For these wallets, we selected their Essex line. Essex 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 a particularly rich coloring. We're using their natural color for these - it starts off with a medium-light brown, that will darken and age beautifully with time .
