Marbled Shell Cordovan Akita Wallet
This Akita wallet has been made from Marbled Shell Cordovan leather - hand dyed by Katie Fiorito with K&M Leather (not to be confused with me, K&H) with a process that takes weeks once she receives the shells in crust form.
Unlike the Marbled Shell Cordovan produced by tanneries, which usually looks more like brush strokes than actual marbling, Katie uses an incredibly advanced technique to achieve this wild marbling that nobody else in the world is producing on Shell Cordovan right now.
This Akita Wallet also comes with an extra pocket on the back, a unique detail not found on other Akita wallets.
It has been saddle stitched with Copper Thread, and has Antique Copper Snaps. There is only one like it! This Shell is used up - and every Shell she produces is unique, so we’ll never see another that looks exactly the same.
