Hand tooled crafting has produced a beautiful decorative textured finish, while the interior compartments allow for maximum contents, without bulk.

Ten card slots, four long cash/flat bill sleeves. Dome closure.
How they’re made:
La Marca leather wallets and handbags are handcrafted by a family-run business in Mexico.
Leather tooling is a traditional Mexican craft regaining prominence in Mexico and around the world, aided by the shift away from mass-production and resource wastage, as consumers look to how their garments and accessories are produced.
Termed ‘artisanal luxury’, these products reflect the time, skill and amount of hand-crafting involved in an item and the culture and heritage they reflect.
Mexico is a land of colour – and La Marca accessories and bags reflect this. The leather is coloured usually using natural dyes which are vegetable, berry and bark-based pigments applied by hand to the leather. Some water-based paints are used to product particular finishes.
La Marca’s makers have teamed with a small leather producer who uses vegetable-tanning, an environmentally friendly process which does not involve harsh chemicals.
It is initially stiffer to the touch, but is more durable over time, gradually softening and ‘wearing’ in to create a beautiful aged feel.
