THE VALE

Constructed of the finest Italian bridle leather, this piece is crafted by M Tallowin. The Vale is a streamlined card-holder featuring sleeves both front and back, designed to accommodate ten cards with a little extra space for folded notes. The valley-like curves at the opening of this model, designed to allow swift access, lend the Vale its name.

This piece is created entirely by hand; from the initial pattern cutting, beveling and burnishing, through to the hand-stitchwork itself. The Vale's 210 stitch-holes are individually cut before the components are saddle-stitched together, again by hand. 70 saddle stitches are formed in linen thread and completed with 4 double whip stitches. When finished the Vale is pressed to its final shape, conditioned and set in the unique presentation case.

The Vale is personally guaranteed.
