Redefine The Wallet With Slim Timber
Recently, my husband found himself in need of a new wallet. Ben has tried different wallets throughout the nine years that we've been married and probably the longest lasting one he has used was a pretty standard money clip. I'm always on the hunt for something new, different, or cutting edge and I also have come to love the use of raw and natural materials. As soon as Ben gave me the green light to search for a new wallet, I immediately thought of how sleek and eye-catching it would be to have a wooden wallet. Before long, my search led me to Slim Timber, who sent me the wallets pictured above, at no cost, to facilitate this review.
As soon as I took these wallets out of the box the first thing I noticed was how lite they were. I was seriously shocked! You would think that with using a heavier material like wood they would feel bulky and heavy, but these wallets proved to be sleek and easy to carry. The Slim Timber Rosewood Card Wallet, and the Walnut Card Wallet are both rich in tone and color and as you can tell from the picture above, the appeal of the wood tones and grains shine through both styles.
The Rosewood card wallet is handcrafted out of Rosewood, leather, and an elastic strap. It is small enough that it makes a great front pocket wallet although it works as a back pocket wallet as well. The elastic strap holds the cards in place while the thumb grooves make it easy to remove them. This wallet is ideal for credit, business, and I.D. cards. You may even be able to fit a few dollar bills in there. The Wallet can fit up to 8 credit or I.D. cards and even more business cards.

Obviously, the Walnut version is made from Walnut versus the Rosewood, but the other materials and specifics remain the same. These both are truly fantastic wallets, especially for someone who is looking for a Card Wallet variety.
The bottom and sides of the wallet is lined with black leather and I'm so thrilled that Slim Timber kept with the rough, natural textures and materials in finishing this wallet. I can tell you that these wallets are very well made (I have not experienced any "give" or looseness in the leather or the wood) and using a strong material like leather adds to the masculine feel of these card wallets.
For my cards, eight was a pretty tight fit. I did find that I could get them all in as long as I put the cards in alternating with the side of the card that had the raised numbers. Six cards fit extremely well and definitely left room for cash. It also made it extremely easy to thumb through them to pull out the exact card I needed. The elastic strap keeps the cards securely in place. "Slim Timber" describes this wallet to a "T"! I never would have imagined that I could fit so much into such a sleek wallet! My husband loves his new wallet and doesn't mind the compliments and the looks of intrigue when he pulls it out.
