MOLDED CARD HOLDER

MOLDED CALF LEATHER

  • This card holder is made of calf leather with a compact and smooth grain. Entirely molded, its curvy shape emerges as the leather is pressed over a metal structure. This meticulous technique creates unique pieces that are sensitive to the asperities of the hand that makes them. Its construction is seamless and unlined; each piece is waxed and polished by hand. The result is a card holder composed of two molded shapes which encase smoothly into one another without any added closure system.

THE MOLDED LEATHER ACCESSORIES

LEMAIRE presents four new molded leather accessories with clean and soft lines, handcrafted in the region of Cadiz in Spain. Extending the idea of bags as objects, this new line of Molded offers five pieces that honor the singular and ancestral know-how from the town of Ubrique: a card holder, a cigarette holder, a key holder and the Tacco Bag. The molded form of each pieces is achieved by pressing wet leather encased in a metal mold. The leather is held taut in the heavy frame and, as the hours pass, takes on the desired shape. The shell shape emerges once the form is removed from the mold and cut to size. It is then smoothed out by hand, using the traditional patacabra wooden hammer on a resin base, to remove any remaining irregularities. Dye is applied to the edges with a brush to highlight the contours of each item, which is then waxed by hand to reveal the full potential of the leather’s deep sheen.
