NEWS – Ethan at WESN has let me know that they have recently launched a leather wallet called the Forsta which in Swedish, means first, initial, or original. That’s a fitting name for their first wallet. The Forsta is a 4-pocket bi-fold style wallet that is made of a single piece of folded and stitched Swedish Veg Tan Leather. It can hold up to 16 cards and is available now for $80 directly from WESN.
I’ve reviewed a LOT of non-leather wallets throughout the years, but I always drift back to using a leather wallet for my EDC. I prefer leather because it just feels great in your hand and there’s the wonderful patina that it develops over time. You can find my current favorite leather wallet listed on my Julie’s favorite gear page.
