Full Grain Leather


Over time and with use, the leather will assume a unique patina. If desired, condition with mineral oil or beeswax leather conditioner.


This leather piece with rustic accents is meant to be passed on to future generations.

This rustic Slim Wallet is hand crafted from Full Grain Leather and hand sewn to give you the best wallet you'll ever own. Easy to store cards and bills in, incredibly stylish, this Slim Wallet will always be at your side. Perfect for the businessman, traveler and explorer, this is a must buy.

The flesh side of the soft leather is first stained with natural drab tone and finished with our proprietary beeswax conditioner. Our unique treatment not only helps the leather to retain its shape without the aid synthetic stabilizers, it also eliminates the need for a lining (often the first to tear) offering a natural and durable look.

The leather we use, originating from our well established supplier Compiel, is nothing but Full Grain Leather, and if you don't know what that is, then make sure you're sitting comfortably. There are 4 types of leather, and they differ in quality. You have Full Grain Leather, Top Grain Leather, Genuine Leather and Bonded Leather.

We'll start with Bonded Leather. It's more of an insult to call Bonded Leather a leather. It's basically lots of different parts of leather glued and pressed together to make one piece. It's cheap, not at all durable and it will fall apart within weeks. In short, it's no good and we are completely against it.

Genuine Leather is in third place in the running, and is the layer of the hide that remains after the top is taken off for the better quality leathers. This surface can often be given a makeover with a finish, sometimes a spray paint that can give it the look of a better quality. Not something that happens in our house. Don't settle for this, you can do better.

Top Grain Leather is the second highest grade that you'll find. A leather taken from the top layer of the hide that is treated, sanded and refined. It's a good quality leather, but not good enough for Hide and Drink. You can still do better, though, go one more step higher.

Full Grain Leather is the best you can get when it comes to leather, there's no competition here, and Hide and Drink is its biggest fan. Full Grain Leather comes from the top layer of the hide, and has all of the grain, hence its name. It's the best leather than you can buy, and the only leather that we use. You can stop looking now, you've found the cream of the crop.

The tanning process is something that we take pride in. Our rustic leather is created through removing the hair, extracting the moisture, taking out the oils and, of course, the natural preservatives. The leather is placed in a large container filled with new oils, coloring and preservatives, and there it takes on its new color and thus its new personality. The finishing process consists of pressing the leather with heated plates, hung up to dry and sprayed and finished with a sealer. Finally it is pressed once more and then ready for its transformation, in which it is carefully handcrafted by the diligent locals of Pastores, Guatemala, where our workshop is located.

Great leather

High quality leather and very soft yet durable. It holds my cash and 4 cards easily. I have bought a couple of other items from Hide & Drink and I have not been disappointed with any of them. Really nice workmanship.

Just perfect for my needs.

I've had my minimalist wallet for about tow months now, and I'm very happy with my purchase. It's made from high-quality leather, looks fantastic, and holds everything I need it to and nothing more. I can now hold my wallet and phone in same back pocket, as the two combined is equal to the thickness of my previous wallet alone. This truly is a minimalist wallet, so if that's what you're looking for, you can't go wrong with getting one.

Great Wallet

Exactly as advertised. Slim, holds 6-8 cards easily, plus cash. And that smell! Nothing like fresh leather!
