The Last Wallet You May Ever Need

This may well be the obituary of the wallet and cardholder as we know it: As new electronic forms of smart phone payment gather force, they may forever change the way we pay for goods and services. So if you bought one of my elegant and durable leather wallets or cardholders, it may well be the last one you ever need.

My philosophy is to attempt to produce articles that will last over many years.

This is significant in the production of wallets and cardholders, especially wallets where I would never use delicate leathers that are traditionally thinned, leaving vulnerable breaking points.

They are unstable and weak and, over a relative short period of time, they will suffer under the strain of constant use and split. This for me is unsustainable.

As a consequence, my wallets must remain simple to ensure that they are both slim yet made from a stronger, thicker leather.

They have space for notes and six to ten cards, but little else. There are no plastic windows or tryptic folding compartments.

'Less is more' is most definitely my motto when it comes to wallets and cardholders.

Some questions, some answers

How do you get your inspiration?

Like so many artists or craftsmen my inspiration comes from nature, my life, the place I live, the people I meet and the trips I take.
Necessity is also a great driver to be creative. If I were not creative I would have to close my business. This is a powerful incentive to create and innovate.

Why do you work alone?
Can I get my purchases gift wrapped?
Can I get a monogram engraved on my purchase?
When will I receive my order?
Can you copy my favourite Hermes bag?
How do I maintain my Alexis Fasoli items?
Do I have to pay a deposit when ordering a custom or bespoke item?
How much does your art cost?

As I make so many products with very different techniques, it is difficult to give an accurate guide to prices, but I will give you a few guidelines so that you can get a rough idea.

Belts would start around 120 euros for classic simple models and could go over a 1000 euros for the more fancy labour intensive designs. Small bags and clutches would probably start around 300 euros and could go to around a 1000 depending on the type of leather and labour intensity. Bigger bags would be made to measure only and tend to cost around 2000 euros or more. Sandals are only made to measure and start at around 300 euros.

In the heart of Barcelona I carefully craft hand made products for special people that want to stand out. Unique one offs made by myself. Only a handful of items produced every year for the fortunate few that get to own an 'af'.
