This passport holder is very unique! Created using small cuts of Shell Cordovan leather hand stitched onto a piece of kangaroo leather and finally brought together with an interior of kangaroo leather will serve to protect your passport holder well. The video above details the construction of this exact passport holder. This is the only one of its kind. 

With a construction time of approximately 4 hours, this passport holder is by far the most intricately detailed passport holder that I've made. A lot of concentration was required to ensure that the Shell Cordovan pieces fit perfectly together and that the stitching was even and precise. 

Shell Cordovan is known the world over for its beautiful appearance and longevity. Used by luxury shoe and boot makers for its toughness and brilliant shine it's the perfect leather for shoes, wallets, and bags. Given proper care, this passport holder will develop a truly wonderful patina. 

The inside of this passport holder is made from vegetable tanned kangaroo leather. Known for its unbeatable strength and incredible abrasion resistance, kangaroo leather is preferred by many wallet makers, whip makers, and sport shoe makers around the world. 

This passport holder features 2 main slots for passports (though it is sized to fit just one passport), 4 card slots, and one open slot to fit a plane ticket or other larger documents. 

**But... Why so expensive??**

I am proud to be a hand made maker. I don't use any machines during the production process. I hand cut, hand stitch, and hand finish every item. I use no sewing machines, no factory production line, and I certainly do not outsource the production of my items. Each wallet, passport holder, belt, or bag I make is made using my hands, and only my hands. 

Also, due to the high demand and short supply of Shell Cordovan leather, prices for each individual shell are quite high. Couple this with the kangaroo leather used and the time it takes me to make this wallet, the price does add up. You can compare the price of this wallet to my other wallets to see just how much of a difference the Shell Cordovan leather makes to the price.

While I try my best to accurately represent the colours of the leather, it can be difficult due to a number of reasons. The hides them selves can differ slightly as well as monitor settings for you and me may be different.
