Initial idea from Dagmar from :
I want a special wallet: it should have a zipper so that you can open the wallet once. So the zipper goes around it once. On the left side inside there should be a money clip, on the other side there should be a pocket for cards and a driver's license. Since I still have an old driving licence, the inside dimensions of this compartment must be at least 90×120 mm.
I would be flexible with the material outside – cork would be great, but otherwise also a firm fabric or leather.
The purse should be as handy as possible and not so thick.
The story of the Special wallet:
My name is Francoise, I would be very happy to make your wallet. About the overall size of wallet, I will use the standard size, and I will make sure the inside part of your driving license have the measures you gave. Leather is the available material that I can use. I would like to know if inside part you also want leather or if I can use kitenge material. I would also like to ask which colors do you want inside and out.
Hello dear Francoise,
Leather for outside is great – inside it can be kitengen, inside it can be black, the leather would be great in cognac (light brown) – if that is not available to you, also black.
Thank you for your effort.
Hello dear Francoise,
Looks very good! I'm looking forward to the wallet!! Colors are approved!
Hello dear Francoise,
I didn't want so many compartments – one compartment would have been enough, and one money clip on the other. The zipper should be all around once, not to unfold. And it's colorful ….
I'll take that anyway. Send it to me.
Hello dear Jochen,
Thank you very much for your message! Nice to meet you! I had also told Francoise back that it wasn't what I wanted – but I still confirmed the assignment because I didn't want her to do the job for nothing.
But it's actually not as I described it!
Therefore: Thank you that we proceed as described by you! I agree with that and would be happy if my project is still implemented the way I wanted it to be!
I am happy to take over the new shipping and customs fees – maybe we can come to an agreement?
My name is Isabel I am a leather artisan. I would love to give you a proposal for the kind of wallet you are looking for. I have gone through your briefs and I have tried to imagine and come up with the kind of product that you are searching for.
Kindly find the attached wallets that I have already made in line with your requirements and let me know if they are better and more fulfilling.
I choose the leather colour to be deep brown called Chesnut brown and California brown both are a high quality leather called pullup.
As for the design one has a round zip, used metallic zip for quality purposes, left side there us a money clip while the right side has a driving Licence slot and card slots.
I have also tried to use an African fabric inside just to make it more vibrant😊.
The second wallet does not have a zip round but has a press button for closure. It also has money clip on the left side and card slots and driving licence slot on the right side.
Please have a look and let me know what is your view.
Hello dear Isabel,
The wallet with the zipper is just the way I wanted it! Looks great! I also like the other one very much – is a nice idea with the snap fastener and looks very noble! I can't decide!!!!
What am I going to do?
So: since the one with the zipper is exactly the way I wanted it, I take this one! What would the second one cost in addition?
I am glad the wallet meet your specification 😊😊
The other wallet would cost about 35Euros.
I would be happy if you can take both wallets but I completely understand you want the one you had given your ideas.😊
Thank you for your quick answer. I stick to my original wish – the wallet has really turned out well for you!
Thank you for everything
