Each handmade leather item we produce comes with no-hassle returns and a lifetime guarantee. We take pride in our work and believe you will too. Nothing leaves our workshop unless we know you'll love it!
I have previously managed to get through life without a business card holder, but now that I am doing some freelance work, I thought it was time to get a holder just for my business cards. When I saw that Popov Leather had a holder, I knew that would be the one to get. I got the cherry leather with red thread and this combo looks great - I really like how the red of the thread complements the reddish tones in the leather. I love how the cherry leather looks when it starts to break in. It's tough/durable while also being soft and molds nicely to the shape of the contents. I think you could easily use this as a small wallet too - it will hold credit cards as well as business cards nicely. In short, this is another thoughtful and simple design from Popov that I am fully enjoying!
In a word, this product is stunning! First, the leather is absolutely gorgeous - you just want to rub it and smell it constantly. As beautiful as it is now, I cannot wait for this leather to age and patina -- I am in LOVE with this English tan color. Second, the craftsmanship of this piece is simply beautiful with great attention to detail and finishing touches. As for function, the field note cover is a very sturdy product that is perfect for my bag or camera backpack to jot notes, lists and reminders. It has already seen some heavy use and I am in love. So much so, I already came back and bought the A5 size for my work bag. I am thrilled with this purchase and highly recommend Popov Leather to anyone -- you will not be disappointed!
Ryan, all I have to say is you are a remarkable craftsman. I waited to write a review for about 3 months in order to fully test having it on my person to see how it held up. After carrying it every day for the last few months I have found this to be the absolute best wallet I have ever owned. The build, quality of leather and attention to detail shows the work of someone who has mastered his craft and takes pride in what they do. All of the stitching has stayed firmly in place (I ordered brown) and the leather has become very supple and aged to a very nice dark chestnut color due to the oils of my hands and the natural burnishing from my pockets and being handled. It is stated to be a 6 card wallet but it could easily hold 12 once its is properly broken in. For all of the Americans looking at this wallet it holds our currency perfectly as well as our cards with no issues. I look forward to owning this for many many years to come. I very highly recommend this wallet. This wallet is made to order, so be prepared to wait a bit to receive it in the mail, however that is to be expected with a handcrafted item such as this and is well worth the wait. Thank you again Ryan for this great product and I wish you and your family only the best in the future!
Cheers from America,
First off, a big thank you to Popov for their excellent customer service. To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised that they take so much pride and care in their products and also their service to their customers.
I have always been a great supporter of small businesses, particularly artisans who are sincere in their craft take pride in their work, and Popov has really outdone themselves.
The stitching is very professionally done, and the cut was perfect. You could really see the difference between a run-of-the-mill wallet and a wallet that has been crafted with care and detailed workmanship. The leather is absolutely stunning! Their customer service is top-notch and adds a very personal touch.
I would definitely urge everyone to give their products a try, I'm sure you will love it as much as I do!
I've owned many wallets over the years. Most of them have been relatively expensive from companies like Coach and Hartmann as well as several handmade wallets purchased through Etsy. They've all been pretty good but I must say that the Popov Leather Card Holder is without a doubt the highest quality, best made wallet I've owned. The leather is nice and thick and the stitching is outstanding. I know this will stand up to a lifetime of use. Looking forward to purchasing more items from Popov Leather.
I am a returning customer and that does show a great deal of trust I have in the products from Popov leather. This lovely little Fieldnotes cover is made with leather of exceptional quality and ages very well with time. It easily fits in a couple of notebooks and a pencil with great ease ( I carry a Pilot Birdie ). It is very well made and quality of stitching and attention to detail is impressive. It's a must have if you are a FN enthsiast and need a good quality cover to keep your notebooks in good nick whilst you carry them.
I'm very happy with this wallet. You can tell by the quality of the leather, cutting, and stitching, that Ryan pours his heart into each piece he makes. The bourbon leather is buttery and just the right thickness with a beautiful color right out of the box, and as you handle the wallet over time, it develops a unique patina. Like the reviewer before me, I picked this wallet to slim down from my old bulky wallet. It has no problem fitting 5 cards + cash + MTA card while remaining slim enough to keep in my front pocket. In addition to a great wallet, Ryan's customer service is equally great. He was very understanding as I went back and forth trying to settle on colors. Ryan, next time you're in NYC, I'll buy you a beer (or alternative drink of choice)!
This keychain is something I recommend to all people who want something that is not too flashy but holds your keys. It is a very well handcrafted keychain that has a engraving on it, that I chose. Overall very satisfied with the quality of my keychain and again recommend this to anyone looking for a nice keychain. Also, I messed up my order when I placed it and was able to get ahold of Ryan within 24hrs. The customer service they offer is brilliant and made my time dealing with this company that much better.
This wallet is literally AMAZING!!!! I bought this gift for my partner's birthday. It's gorgeous and he loves it. It looks so sharp and clean, very masculine. It's extremely sturdy and holds all his cards and money. He likes that he has to fold the money into a quarter fold and doesn't flash his amount of money in larger pocket. He doesn't carry a lot of cash though so i'm not sure how it would be for someone that does. .I did order it too close to his birthday and it was late (which is totally my fault) it does take three-four weeks so order it early! Literally buy it, its amazing and he loved it! Great price for a hand made wallet with his name on it!
What an amazing wallet! I've been looking for this wallet for years! I will definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone. This is exactly what I have been looking for: a thin simple quality wallet that can hold everything I need. I have a lot of essential cards that I need. Purchasing this "5 card" wallet I was nervous if it would all fit. But the 10 cards that I need fit easily and comfortably all on the inside, and I use the outside pocket for cash. Perfect wallet for me! Clearly made of tough quality products. The leather feels amazing! And the stitching looks tough. Overall a very quality durable wallet and I honestly couldn't be happier with my purchase! I will definitely be buying another once this one fails, which doesn't look like will happen anytime soon! Buy this wallet!!
Also, great customer service! I had a few questions before my purchase I got prompt concise responses. Also, the shipping was much faster then expected. Great experience, I will definitely be buying more Popov products!
When my husband commented on a PoPov Leather picture he saw online I knew I needed to pay attention. Always at a loss for "the perfect gift," I was glad he handed me an idea on a silver platter.
I ordered the Chocolate Leather Field Notes Cover with Pockets, initials, and pen loops for Valentine's Day. The only thing that outmatched his enthusiasm was my own at seeing him happy with the product. He now carries it everywhere. I think this may be the most successful gift effort on my behalf. I have you to thank. (Also, I will need ideas each holiday if you could kindly send me brilliant new suggestions frequently.)
Bonus: My husband loves Moleskine notebooks and is especially happy that he can use his stash of pocket notebooks with his PoPov product. Win/win.
I like that it smells good. Make a candle that smells this way, please and thank you. Great job! Beautiful craftsmanship. Perfect customer service.
Seriously. I now own the Business Card Holder, the Card Holder, and the Field Notes Cover all in Chocolate Leather with White stitching. The quality and thickness of the leather has been well commented on... I just love how it feels and smells in my hand... how the leather takes on supple character over time. I'm thinking of buying these as gifts for people so I can see other color options. (Seriously, I have a problem.)
As for the Business Card holder... I love the idea of keeping one side full of my cards, the other ready for accepting cards. If you need to double-down, no worries... I estimate you could pack 12-16 cards per side (depending on the thickness). It also fits nicely in the inside card pocket of a blazer, if that's how you carry.
If you're on the fence, hop off... I get compliments every time I pull it out of my pocket
I did received the Field Notes Cover with Pockets with my initial laser onto the front of the cover. The workmanship is very nice and the color match exact what is seen on the website. I believe it will last a long time. The only thing that I found is the initials are very low on the right side bottom of the cover. In which when you put something in the lower inside pocket on the left side and close the cover the initials seem to disappear in the corner. I really enjoy the workmanship on the product and that is the only thing that I might change for future orders. Look forward in making another selection for additional gifts in the future. Thanks for your service and quality of product.
Got my 5-card wallet in between the estimated time and carefully packed. Really nice first impression, solid stitching, thick leather enough to be durable but not so to be bulky. Really glad I went with this newer version and not the older one, which would be a bit too much for a front pocket wallet, I guess. Fits perfectly Euro bills (up to 50€ bill) folded once. I use its one side, the one that does not have the outer pocket, just for cash, for easy access, and the other side for cards. As the company states, due to the leather nature, colour may vary. Mine came in a significantly darker driftwood colour than the pictured one, so keep that in mind. It is equally beautiful though! Thanks guys, with so many great stuff I 'll likely come back in the future for sure. Cheers
