Handmade by Mark Hanks and made exclusively from premium remnant Riverside leather - highly prized by luxury footwear designers for its soft, smooth finish - our Classic Collection is where minimalist design and uncompromising quality meets dutiful function.
A collaboration between designers Mark Hanks, Jessica Ashley, Diana Quiroz, and Michael Menninger, our Classic Collection is a subtle realisation of a bold statement. We wanted to show that pristine remnant leather could stand up against the likes of any other luxury wallet or cardholder. Form and function at the fore, the design is deliberately simple to allow the quality of the Riverside leather to speak for itself, whilst low-key detailing adds a hint of character

“It began with a routine business meeting about manufacturing services. It became something completely different.”
What is remnant leather?
Remnant leather is the material left over once a leather hide has been cut or clicked at the factory or tannery. Especially in the fashion industry, manufacturers will frequently use only a small or specific part of a leather hide, then deem the rest of it to be scrap, even if it’s in pristine condition. This process sounds inefficient and wasteful because it is, especially when you consider so much remnant leather won’t be recycled, but put straight into landfill. We decided to do something about it.
