Limited Edition of five

This piece was created in response to a historical artefact, a leather wallet made for Samuel Pepys in Constantinople in 1687. This contemporary design, crafted in London some 330 years later is offered in a limited edition of five.

It features two card sleeves, a small pocket behind and a larger pocket for notes of all major currencies. The leathers used are both Italian; a burnished bridle and a softer and more flexible boarded bubble.

The 513 stitch-holes were individually cut by hand before the stitchwork can begin. The New Pepys' is completely hand stitched - 204 saddle stitches, secured with 9 doubled whip stitches.

Handcrafted by M. Tallowin.
