Carry your Essentials in Style  

Axess Wallets makes minimalist wallets in vegetable tanned leather from one of Tuscany’s oldest tanneries. Founded in 1955, the small family-run tannery uses traditional tanning methods to produce vegetable tanned leather desired by some of Italy’s largest luxury brands.   

• Organic vegetable tanned leather from a small family-owned tannery in Tuscany, Italy that develops a rich patina over time.

• Scandinavian minimalist front pocket wallet designs that fit seamlessly in your pocket without bulking up.  

• Handmade in small batches using strong core spun stitching that holds up to wear and tear.  

• RFID-blocking pockets to shield your cards from skimming & demagnetization

 

Maurizio’s Tannery  

This small family run tannery opened in 1955 in the heart of the vegetable tanning district of Tuscany, Italy making it one of the oldes tanneries in the district.

While many of the larger surrounding tanneries have been purchased by larger conglomorates, Maurizio has kept his in the family, keeping it small and constantly refining the vegetable tanned leather which he keeps making in small batches. 

In the tannery, making a single skin takes 6 weeks!

The process to produce the Tuscany vegetable tanned leather is painstaking and long and has been used for centuries to create beautiful leather out of animal hides. Most importantly, it doesn’t use any harmful chemicals in the tanning process. The exact tannin composition is a well kept family secret.

The full process, to make a single skin, takes 6 weeks and is largely done by hand. Maurizio’s exact tannin composition is still a well kept family secret. His leather is desired by some of the biggest fashion brands in Italy, keeping the tannery alive and well for the ages. We are proud to state that this is the leather we have used to create Axess Wallets.

 

Inspired by Scandinavian Minimalist Design

Sweden is commonly regarded as embodying all that is great about Scandinavian design with its minimalist ideas of using clean, simple lines and a strong emphasis on functionality and that is also the heritage from which the design of Axess Wallets originated from. 

 
Scandinavian design is a design movement characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality which is embodied in each wallet.

Handmade & RFID-blocking

Each wallet is carefully handmade using strong core spun stitching which holds up well to wear and tear and the pockets are designed to withstand daily use. For added functionality, each wallet has one (or in the V-shaped wallet, two) RFID-blocking pockets to protect your sensitive cards from wireless skimming.

What's new?

Due to quality control issues in the past, in this iteration of Axess Wallets we have redesigned the pockets of each model to make for a more sturdy design that holds up better to wear and tear and keeps the inner lining intact.

Instead of the previous small holes in the credit card slots, we now use full separate strip type slots which have a much increased durability.

 

 

 

The new back slot on the 'Admire'-model is not only stronger, but also holds 3 more cards than the old one.

In addition to redesigning all card slots we have also developed a completely new model, the 'Essential' - Key wallet.

Why we need backers

To continue developing Axess we offer the wallets at a 33% lower price from their regular prices to buy leather from the tannery, which is sold in large Minimum Order Quantities so that we can keep making the wallets in a larger scale in our 7 colors and leathers.
