LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. -- With the holiday season around the corner, it's time to start thinking about those gifts and stocking stuffers. Duane Ballard Custom Leather has made this year's special gift search a little easier with its new line of custom wallets.
Duane is known for producing some of the finest leather motorcycle seats in the industry, and now he is expanding leather product line to include custom wallets. Ballard handcrafts each wallet using seven ounce, 100 % Grade A cowhide for the exterior and Kangaroo leather, prized for its durability, strength and flexibility, for the lining. The wallets are all hand-stitched using calfskin binding.
"Like everything else I do, these wallets are one-offs, so it's guaranteed no one else will have anything like them," said Ballard. "They're thin, strong and can be hand-tooled with unique designs to suit a variety of tastes, making them the perfect personalized present for the holidays or any special occasion."
Ballard has over 10 years experience in leather crafting and hand sews, dyes, laces and tools each product himself. His saddles have appeared on bikes featured in Discovery Channel's "Biker Build-Off" series and have won "Best Upholstery" at shows across the country. He also recently introduced a line of leather toolbags, specially crafted to retain their shape and made to hold anything from an iPod to a rain jacket. All Ballard's leatherwork is completely custom, each detail of the design a result of close collaboration with the client.
The custom wallets start at $250 and are available for special order starting today.
