Friday & River has caught our interest for some time now. We are suckers for great leather goods and wanted to specifically highlight their Discovery Long Wallet. Founded in 2011 and based in San Diego, California, Friday & River combines Western and Eastern aesthetics to offer thoughtful products that are designed to take on the personality of their owner over time.
F&R combines the rugged durability of the West, and the minimal “better with age” wabi-sabi ethos of Japan, and the history of craftsmanship of both cultures, into each product they make. Each piece of leather is special and possesses its own marks, color, grain, etc, and may vary depending on the piece it is cut from. A percentage of every sale is donated to one of several charities that we contribute to, such as Toys For Tots, St. Vincent de Paul, and The Red Cross.
Inspired by the traditional trucker wallet, F&R’s Discovery Long Wallet is slim and minimal, designed to be comfortable while carrying in your back pocket. It features a dual-snap closure to keep your cards and bills safe and secure. The Discovery is made of rich Horween Chromexcel or natural vegetable tanned leather, it will take on it’s own unique patina over time.
