These Roberu leather wallets are studies in both style and strength. Each is crafted from naturally tanned oil leather which will age beautifully over many years without losing its luster (or your small change). Segmented inside to separate coins, cards, and notes, what really makes these stand out from the crowd is their satisfying ergonomy—all smooth curves and nestled brass zippers—fitting snugly into a back pocket without jutting or poking.

These are a far cry from the wallets of history. In Ancient Greece the term “wallet” referred to a kind of travelers survival kit, stocked with food and supplies to be replenished at the first opportunity. They were large and in charge, and definitely no good for a night on the town.

It wasn’t until the Renaissance that the word began to denote a cash carrying vessel, but the term was still applicable to a wide variety of carrier bag as late as the early 20th century.

It was the postwar consumer boom of the fifties that led to a large scale uptake of the billfold we recognize today. People had more spare cash, for one thing. And the advent of the credit card only emphasized the need for a slim, pocket sized wallet.

The bi-fold and tri-fold designs that followed set the stage for mass production of wallets the world over, and helped create a demand for premium, hand-crafted wallets, sought after by a more discerning and fashion-conscious consumer. Enter Roberu.

These are the first pieces from their Spring/Summer Collection. They come in seven different colors: caramel, dark brown (suede), green, red, brown, black, and camel.

Use & Care

As with any natural leather product, avoid humidity and high temperature conditions. The leather can be cleaned of larger stains using a little soap and tepid water.
