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.
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.
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.
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.
