The Houbei


The Houbei is made from full-grain leather. It features a unique tuck closure and 4 pockets fitting up to 7-8 credit cards and quite a bit of cash. We have fit as many as 20 bills and 6 credit cards in the wallet at one time. The main benefits of the Houbei are the ability to store cash without folding it first and the quick draw pocket on the back. Simply slide cash in the back interior pocket and tuck it in the front along with the flap. The quick draw pocket on the back exterior is ideal for your most used cards.

The Houbei comes in a variety of Italian Buttero veg tan leathers. When choosing your color combo, please note that the first color mentioned is the main body while the second color mentioned is the back pocket. For example, in the first photo on the right you see the "Whiskey w/blue" option. On the left you see the "Blue w/whiskey" option.

"Buttero Vegetable Tanned Leather comes from Conceria Walpier Tannery in Italy. They are well known for their premium vegetable tanned leathers and the beautiful colors they are able to produce. This veg tan leather is their top grade, it is full grain and has a nice balance between supple and firm." -RM Leather Supply
