GJ Cleverley's affiliation with Russian reindeer hide is something of a mythic tale - in 1973 the house secured a supply of extraordinary 18th century Russian reindeer hides that were found by deep sea divers in the hull of a sunken trade brigantine off the South Coast of England- and which conditions on the seabed had miraculously preserved for some 200 years.

GJ Cleverley’s affiliation with Russian reindeer hide is something of a mythic tale – in 1973 the house secured a supply of extraordinary 18th century Russian reindeer hides that were found by deep sea divers in the hull of a sunken trade brigantine off the South Coast of England – and which conditions on the seabed had miraculously preserved for some 200 years.
The hides had been cured in baths of rye or oat flour and yeast, hand embossed with a cross-hatched grain and then soaked in seal oil and birch tan oil – yielding an extraordinary leather which is both supremely durable and malleable, perfect for fine shoemaking and for the crafting of superior leather goods, even after some two centuries on the sea bed.
The breast wallet you see before you then is no ordinary piece of design – it is a timeless heirloom – cut in a rare and precious leather that is quite literally a piece of history. Based on the Victorian gentleman’s pocket book, this wallet is designed to fit comfortably into a coat pocket, with ten credit card pockets and three full height pockets for tickets, cheques or bank notes. Handmade in London from what is becoming an increasingly limited supply of Russian reindeer hide, it is arguably the Rolls Royce of gentlemen’s wallets.
