A drum roll please… we’d like to introduce the latest addition to the Colville Leather family, ‘The Dart’. Inspired by the traditional biker wallet, The Dart brings a new edge to our collection of handmade leather wallets. Already proving to be a very popular addition to the Colville range, it is a great unisex wallet with an effortless balance of style and functionality.
Let’s find out why we’re so excited about our latest Colville Leather accessory …
The perfect everyday carry
Known for their versatility, biker-style wallets are a popular choice for those who like to stand out from the crowd. Inspired by the traditional biker design, The Dart is designed to accompany you wherever your journey may take you.
Its timeless bi-fold design includes two card slots, two pockets for notes and receipts, and even a unique zipper pocket for coins, something no other Colville Leather wallet features. Made with a solid brass YKZ zipper, this handy coin pouch makes The Dart the perfect everyday carry. And, even with its extra pockets and large carrying potential, this wallet still fits happily into a regular sized pocket.
Handmade from quality Horween leather
The Dart is lovingly handcrafted using the finest Horween Derby leather. Steeped in a rich history of artisanal craftsmanship spanning generations, this leather is famous across the globe for the delights it delivers to the senses. Part of the Essex family of leather, Horween Derby is a waxed, vegetable-tanned side variety. It is made using traditional techniques that honour leather artisans of the past. During its production in Chicago, full grain hides are conditioned with emulsified oils and waxes.
As a result, the finished leather ages beautifully over time, with growth marks and scars standing proud. It also produces a special ‘pull up’ effect, where the leather lightens in colour when folded or turned. These qualities make Horween Derby leather the perfect choice for creating unique leather products with a genuine, rugged charm. The Dart is a handsome wallet with a captivating aged appearance and stunning colouration – sure to become the envy of your friends and family.
The devotion and skill invested by five generations of the Horween family is admired throughout the industry. Their passion for creating outstanding leathers is palpable with every Derby hide, and with each Dart wallet that we lovingly craft. Not only does The Dart look, feel and smell beautiful, but every fibre is infused with the famous Horween commitment to quality.
Stitching and hardware
The Dart is crafted entirely from hand with not a machine in sight. As a fitting complement to the finest Horween Derby leather, it also features solid brass hardware. The brass will keep its strength, which makes it perfect for the daily and repetitive use that comes with a wallet.
This new Colville addition is handstitched to give a charming rugged aesthetic. Not only does this enhance the style of the wallet, it means that we can personally ensure that each stitch is completed to the highest standard. We use a traditional saddle stitch with a rot-resistant thread, ideal for creating strong and durable everyday items. This work of art really is built to last.
A colour to suit you
Available in a choice of two Horween Derby colours, there’s a Dart wallet design to suit everyone’s tastes. Whether you choose English Tan or Nut Brown, you can be sure your Colville wallet will be crafted with care, with exquisite attention to detail.
As with all our products, The Dart is also available in a natural option for those who want to earn an extreme patina. Starting from a blank canvas, watch as the colour of your new wallet changes depending on when, where and how you use it. The oils in your hands and the natural sunlight will create a unique patina that tells mesmerising tales of all your adventures.
Made to last a lifetime
Just like all of our Colville Leather products, The Dart is expertly handcrafted with quality and longevity at its core. Part of the answer to a more sustainable fashion industry is to make products that don’t require regular replacement. This way, we’re addressing the negative effects of the leather industry and helping to thwart the disconcerting world of fast fashion we find ourselves in.
Caring for your wallet
And so, it figures that we are truly committed to producing high-quality accessories that, with the right care and attention, can last a lifetime. When care instructions are followed, Colville Leather will offer a lifetime repair warranty on your Dart wallet. We will also provide a lifetime of support in caring for your special leather companion.
So, there you have it, an introduction to our latest handmade leather wallet, The Dart. With its stylish design, handcrafted charm and appealing versatility, this wallet will make a treasured gift for someone special in your life, or even a great present to yourself!
