One Star Leather Goods Wallet Review
A Premium Handmade Wallet from LA
One Star Leather Goods is a small independent leather manufacturer from Los Angeles. Since 2012, One Star Leather Goods have been working with a small team out of a garage consisting of just 5 people and is a family and friends business affair. The company put much emphasis on the authenticity of their wallets. They want to raise awareness regarding the issues of the environmental impact of the leather industry, and the likes of Amazon or any mass-produced goods, for exacerbating the issue further. I myself am a big advocate of buying locally or from smaller wallet manufacturers. Not only do you get better quality goods, but also help a small business excel – a win; win in my opinion.
Look & Design
The wallet we’re reviewing today from One Star Leather Goods is their Horizontal Leather Wallet. This very classic looking leather bi-fold (coming in at 8cm x 10cm close) immediately caught my attention thanks to its beautiful design and impeccable craftsmanship. The Wallet itself is made from a Latigo Leather. This full-grain cowhide is infused with a variety of natural oils and waxes and provides maximum durability and a distinct appearance. The wallet is also guaranteed to develop a patina over time that adds to the uniqueness of the wallet and gives it a worn vintage look and feel.
Functionality & Usability
The functionality is very much a standard affair not trying to be something it’s not. With a capacity of between 1 – 12 credit/debit cards, thanks to its 6 individual pockets, and a full-width internal slot for banknotes, the wallet does a great job of providing an easy to manage, store, and access wallet. When carrying the Horizontal wallet on a daily basis I found it a highly enjoyable and seamless experience and couldn’t recommend it enough.
At a price tag of around $93.00 the One Star Leather Wallet is a pricey wallet but I’d say that’s understandable. This sort of price is to be expected with a handcrafted leather of this type. I personally am willing to pay the extra for a wallet that oozes quality and is a truly unique wallet where each one is slightly different from the rest.
