Just in time for the holiday season (well perhaps a smidge late!) we’ll be launching onto our site the Leon collection passport holder / travel wallet. We’ve been working on our design for about 4 months now with several intrepid travellers out there putting prototypes to the test.
Here Susan, shows off her prototype model in blue chèvre and red kangaroo at Haneda Airport in Tokyo!
Reports are in and we’re now happy with the design. While pulling this design together we researched and road-tested many alternatives. We noticed many passport wallets were laden with card slots which we didn’t think was necessary. Those live in our Leon super-slim card wallets. Next we observed few holders took into account an individual travelling with multiple passports, or a family travelling together. And lastly, one of the most important items for air travel, none of the other passport holders had a solution we liked for holding boarding passes.
Thus our Leon version was born. True to the Leon design it adopts the unique curved paneling and includes:
- Two passport pockets each capable of holding two passports each
- A handy strap to secure boarding passes
- A small card pocket for the odd card you might carry with your passports
Like with the rest of the Leon collection, the Leon passport holder is available in super-unique colour combos with contrast stitching and hardware. And as with all our leather items, it’s 100% handmade in our Sydney studio.
Check out the range. We’d love your feedback!
