WalletBe Mens and Womens Wallets Handcrafted with the Finest Leather in the World

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Handcrafted Mens Leather WalletsWe use the best leather in the world. Period. We dont use plastic or fake leather. And never would think to.

Each year, WalletBe studies existing and emerging fashion colors and incorporates the most exciting and popular ones into the designs of our mens wallets and womens wallets.

We manage the entire wallet design process which includes the type of leather we use. We use only the best leather in the world for our wallets which is commonly referred to as Italian leather. Our Italian leather is sourced in the United States from only the best hides.

Hides are not technically leather until after theyve been tanned. After we select the hides, we then ship them off to the Tuscan mountains of Italy where the best tanners in the world reside. Once the hides are tanned, they can then be referred to as Italian leather. The tanning process for WalletBe wallets is complex and requires our complete attention to detail. We make sure that the tanners match the exact seasonal colors weve chosen. In the past, our wallet colors have included, among so many others, Classic Black, Ferrari Red, Mahogany Brown, Ocean Blue, Purple, and Kelly Green. Some of our leather is two-toned – a light tone interior hand stitched together with a dark tone exterior  – which requires the Italian tanner to tan by hand – a true art. Its an artisan skill that only the Italian tanners in the Tuscan mountains know to do.

Once our Italian leathers have been produced, we bring them to our production plant where each wallet is assembled by hand. Each wallet that you purchase has been handcrafted!  – a major quality component that ensures durability.

Why WalletBe’s Mens and Womens Wallets Are Smaller and Smarter

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

Smaller and Smarter Womens WalletsJim Dimataris founded WalletBe about a decade ago on the premise that he could make high quality men’s and women’s wallets that would make people’s lives easier.  And because he was determined to control the design and production process, he decided to price each wallet so that every American and worldwide citizen could afford to own a WalletBe.

The idea was to design wallets that would have a lifestyle impact on men and women everywhere. Thus, was born his tagline: “The smaller wallet for smarter people”.  And just to make sure customers understood his mission completely, he added the 3 F’s: “fun, functional and fashionable”.

Jim Dimataris: “It’s not about the money, it’s about how we build a brand around making good quality products that make people’s lives easier.”


Quality Wallets Begin with Quality Designs

The first step in producing a quality men’s or women’s wallet is to design quality into them. Our wallet designs are researched thoroughly and market tested to confirm that our ideas are in line with what appeals to you, our customers.

WalletBe is different than any other wallet company in the world because of the way we define a wallet. A wallet today can have many uses. Some like a very small compact thin wallet to just carry the barest of essentials. Some prefer a bit more room and others prefer a wallet similar in size to a purse. No matter the wallet size, our designs allow you to easily and instantly access coins, bills, IDs, lipstick, credit cards, pens, cell phones and anything else that you think is important enough to carry around with you.

You spend more time with your wallet than you spend with your loved ones. So, its quality is of the utmost importance to you and us. It does you no good to have a wallet that will last a few months. Your wallet becomes your identity, the colors personify your attitude in life.

Womens Ultra Thin WalletsWe design each of our wallets to appeal to busy lifestyles of men and women and to the conveniences required to make their lives easier. For example, our wallet interiors typically feature accordion slots that are compact yet expandable to easily allow fingers to roam and locate credit cards… and for eyes to easily view the credit cards at a glance. The accordion slots are hand stitched and don’t tear. Moreover, they are divided into two (2) rows to keep the credit cards organized. The fabric and stitching is all performed by hand so you can trust the quality.

Alongside the accordion slots, we also build in a good amount of extra space for other items. We add outer or inner ID displays so you don’t have to continuously pull the ID out at the supermarket or airport. We add in zippered coin purses, detachable shoulder straps and wristlets which allow you to move about leaving your two hands free to hand carry other items. There are interior elastic cash pouches as well as lipstick and pen holders.

Some of our most popular items are cell phone wallets. No surprise there since 5 billion people worldwide own a cell phone. Our cell phone wallets fit all of the cell phones and smartphones that are on the market today including the iPhone, iPod, Droid, Droid X, Blackberry as well as PDA’s and MP3 Players.

Want to keep up with your friends on Twitter and Facebook? Easy! Each cell phone wallet is designed with a convenient fashionable holster with a security snap button that allows for easy and constant access to your cell phone.
