A technique Joe learned from a nomadic leatherworker who made and sold round braided leather bracelets in Seattle, he originally reserved making these unique wallet lanyards for friends or custom orders. Each one is carefully hand-braided with premium leather secured to solid brass hardware with a touch of glass beading as an accent. Due to the variation in the finished length of the lacing, each braided leather tether is slightly different, possessing its own unique character.
They pair perfectly with our Discovery or Waseda long wallets.
We drew inspiration from the minimal design ethos of Japan and combined artful design with utility to create our signature McGraw Wallet and McGraw Card Holder. Made from a single piece of leather and hand-stitched with extremely strong artificial sinew, these minimal leather wallets are designed to carry the essentials and hold them in a unique way.
We are inspired by the idea that the higher you raise your sail, the farther your ship will go. Meaning that the the harder you work, the better your attitude is, the more positive your outlook on life, the happier and more fulfilled you will be. When we started Friday & River we felt that this sentiment was the perfect reflection of what we stand for, creating our mantra of Raise Your Sail High.
