Comprised of a handful of skilled designers and craftspeople, Tanner Goods is a Portland-based artisanal outfit that produces modern products bestowed with and built using old-world craftsmanship. And since launching the brand in 2006, Tanner has slowly expanded its product range, always placing a premium on quality over quantity. So, while the Midwestern workshop seldom releases new offerings, when it does, we’re always quick to perk up and take notice, and Tanner’s latest release is no exception.
Christened the “Minimal Collection,” this release stands as Tanner’s slimmest wallets to date. Both these new items are crafted from vegetable-tanned Skirting leather that’s ultra-soft and known to develop a charming and characterful patina over time. The first of the two is the Minimal Bifold which boasts a design utilizing a two-piece construction method that sees the pockets cut directly into the wallet’s interior, thereby greatly reducing bulk. The second of the two items is the Minimal Cardholder: an even slimmer, more minimalistic wallet made from the same material. Offered in “Carbon” (black) or “Chestnut” (light brown), both wallets are designed in Portland, Oregon before being manufactured in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pricing for the cardholder wallet starts at $45 and goes up to $80 for the bifold.
