Introducing one of the finest hand-sewn card cases in the world, crafted with meticulous attention to detail and using premium materials.

Every step of the manufacturing process is carried out by hand in Flat Head's Nagano leather workshop, affectionately named Stockburg, under the skilled expertise of a Japanese shokunin leather craftsman.
The cordovan leather used in these card cases is heavily oiled and meticulously burnished, resulting in a luxurious and smooth finish. This meticulous treatment imbues the wallets with an immediate sense of character, which will only grow more pronounced and unique as the years pass by. The commitment to longevity is evident in every aspect of their design, ensuring these Flat Head wallets are built to withstand the test of time, becoming cherished companions for a lifetime.
Not only do these card cases offer exceptional durability, but they also provide the perfect storage solution for your cards and cash. The leather naturally develops a beautiful patina over time, adding a distinct charm and personality to each piece. With their impeccable craftsmanship, premium materials, and timeless appeal, these Flat Head wallets truly represent the epitome of quality and style, making them a must-have for discerning individuals who appreciate the artistry and longevity of a finely crafted Japanese leather wallet.
The Flat Head is one of the benchmark Japanese repro Americana-style brands. Its founder, Mayashi Kobayashi, is known in the scene for being a die-hard fanatic of 1950s American style. Inspired by the music, motorbikes, cars, architecture of the era, and with a clear rockabilly influence, Kobayashi created in 1996 a truly authentic brand that today has some firm devotees. It stands out for the extreme quality of each one of its pieces. The brand is always very much aware of a curious philosophy that believes that a product is fully finished only after the customer has worn and moulded it to themselves.
