If there’s one thing I love doing during the holiday season, it’s daydreaming of all the wonders and possibilities that the upcoming year holds. Inevitably, those daydreams are filled with images of exotic foods and breathtaking scenery, unfolding before me in one of the multitude of places I’ve never been but am literally dreaming of visiting. If winter itself isn’t a part of my travel plans, I’m already focusing on a summer holiday in a foreign country, armed with my passport, a map, and a great sense of awe.
This winter we’ve partnered with Estados, a UK based leather goods brand that sells gorgeously constructed Argentinian leather products. The products are designed in Britain and handmade in a small workshop in the Andean foothills of north west Argentina. The quality of Argentinian leather is world renowned and once you’ve handled it for yourself, it’s clear to see why that’s the case.
Estados generously provided us with one of their luxury leather travel wallets to accompany us on our travels. Since the moment the wallet arrived I haven’t been able to resist reaching into my purse and running my hands across the leather, which feels absolutely amazing. It’s wonderfully soft and supple, so it feels like a much-loved piece that’s been broken in by years of use, but without any sort of weathered look. The appearance is crisp, new, and inviting. To the touch, the leather is smooth, soft, and luxuriously supple.
Travel Wallet in Smooth Black & Bordeaux, £69.99 GBP / $129 USD
Black leather exterior with bordeaux leather interior & silk lined compartments.
The wallet arrived wrapped carefully in a beautiful powder blue tissue paper (complete with an Estados sticker) and placed in a lovely presentation box (perfect for a gift). With the holidays coming up, I think it is the perfect time to give my travel loving friends and family a luxurious treat! I have a few friends who are just getting their first passports and I know they would love and appreciate this wallet as much as I do.
The travel wallet itself has a wonderfully elegant and timeless design that would suit both men and women. It consist of a passport pocket + a shallower pocket for currency, 14 credit card slots, and 2 slip pockets behind the cards. Plenty of space for all your travel essentials. The wallet is slim and streamlined so it will fit nicely into a breast or trouser pocket (or a handbag) without any unnecessary bulk.
A well-made wallet is an essential for me. I tend to pick a favourite and use it for years and years. My current wallet has been my sole wallet for over ten years and no matter how many other wallets I try, I keep coming back to my favourite. The Estados travel wallet has certainly become a new favourite product of mine and one that I’ll undoubtedly be using for years and years to come.
As mentioned earlier, Estados creates a wide selection of luxury leather goods, from wallets to purses to belts to handbags. All the products are beautiful and highly useful products that aren’t merely novelty items, but essentials. The designs are so elegant and understated that they’d be a perfect fit for any style or aesthetic. Cannot be more pleased to have been introduced to such an amazing brand!
