Introducing the Flâneri Exclusives – Pilgrim – leather wallet. Made from premium Plush leather, the Pilgrim has a classic bi-fold design, with a sleek and streamlined silhouette that is both elegant and understated. It features 4 interior card slots as well as 2 pockets to store cash and papers. There is an additional pocket on the exterior for easy access. Each Pilgrim is sewn entirely by hand in a process that takes 3-7 hours to complete.
The Plush leather has undergone a special treatment that gives it its distinctive faded “vintage” look. It embodies the beauty of wabi-sabi: the essence of which lies in the acceptance of slight irregularities, asymmetries, and the celebration of the beauty that arises from natural wear and tear. The leather is supple to the touch yet rugged at the same time. For those who admire the raw, authentic feel of genuine leather, the Pilgim wallet is a blessing.
No two pieces are alike. Each has its own personality and will bear the fingerprints of its master – in the form of a rich patina – with pride in due time. The beautiful contrast stitching adds a bit of panache to an otherwise simple design. It is also practically sized to sit comfortably in all pockets – large or small.
The ‘Pilgrim’ wallet is like that loyal friend who accompanies the journeyman to the ends of the earth. But when it is time to return home, the ‘Pilgrim’ reminds its companion of voyages known and forgotten etched on its surface. Yet, the Pilgrim never loses sight of the ultimate destination: namely, notalgia.

All Flâneri leather is sourced from sustainable tanneries. Before the leather is made commercially ready, it is cleaned, tumble-dried, buffed, and finally dyed in select colours. Later, the long leather sheets are cut into smaller sections for easier handling. Then, following traditional methods, each wallet is sewn by a master craftsman who diligently stitches the leather parts entirely by hand. Once ready, the end product is carefully polished to remove any debris accumulated during its production.
