Walnut Burl
Minimalist Wood Wallet



Made from the large, knotty burls of a Walnut tree, this species has beautiful dark color and swirling grain patterns.

Where do the grain swirls come from?
Trees (usually) grow straight up. Most wood cut from them will show a straight grain pattern. A burl is very different. It is usually a deformation on the tree, resulting in a round or bulging shape on the tree. When cut, these shapes produce unique swirls and curls of grain.

The Minimalist Wood Wallet is our take on a really simplified carry. We all know you shouldn't sit on a big, bulky wallet (seriously, it's really bad long-term for your back and posture). We also like to keep our keys and phone in our front pockets (separated to avoid scratching).

The Arbor Wood Wallet looks and acts like leather but is made from a single sheet of wood. Backed with Tyvek and hand-stitched for strength. We also developed our own custom wood finish. Made from a secret blend of oils and waxes, it not only protects your new wallet, it smells amazing! 100% made by us, in Indiana.

Completely Unique!

We love working with natural materials because each finished case we make is unique. The grain pattern will react beautifully to lighting changes. The product you receive may have a slightly different pattern than what is pictured. It will be one of a kind.

Natural Feel & Finish

Our finishing process is non-toxic and maintains a natural look and feel to the material. This is an amazing finish that ensures your new case will look great for years to come. We hand finish and sand every piece to create a natural, smooth feel.

Our products are made using natural materials which will never be exactly the same and will react to lighting changes. Every case will have a different and unique pattern. We do our best to photograph a variety of grain patterns and lighting conditions to give you the best idea what our product will look like. We love the changing nature of real materials! Your case will look different in the sun than it will inside your house or car. That is what makes our products so beautiful and unique!

Love it
Review for: Walnut Burl - Minimalist Wood Wallet

I'm a woodworker myself and love the craftsmanship of this wallet. I carry only debit card and driver's license and maybe a few bills and this wallet does it perfectly. The oil seems to be perfect and doesnt leave residue in your pockets. I love it!!

Sleek, simple
Review for: Walnut Burl - Minimalist Wood Wallet

I really loved the minimalist design of this wallet. Only thing that I didn't like was when I first opened the wallet to place cards in it, the wood cracked a bit. Was upset that I had ruined it, however, maybe it was made that way...hopefully it holds up and then wood softens with longer use and manipulation.

Unique & Special
Review for: Walnut Burl - Minimalist Wood Wallet

Great wallet
Review for: Walnut Burl - Minimalist Wood Wallet

Enjoy the color of this one even more in person! Very cool and just as expected!

Great color. No more then 6 cards
Review for: Walnut Burl - Minimalist Wood Wallet

I like this because sometimes I only need my ID, insurance and debit card. Work great for not wanting to bring everything with you and you can grab it and go. Smells and feels wonderful! Very happy with the color! Downside is it only holds about 6 cards MAX. And if you over fill it and sit on it... well I have a small crack in the side now. Probably shouldn’t have over filled but, learning lesson. Over all 4 stars because I think they could do more to modify it to last longer. I don’t see this lasting more then a year or two with everyday use.

Beautiful but not very functional
Review for: Walnut Burl - Minimalist Wood Wallet

The craftsmanship is great and the feel of the wallet is gorgeous as it looks just the way I imagined it.
Only thing I'm a little disappointed in is how narrow the stitching is as it doesn't allow even a single bill to fit in it even when completely empty. But seeing as I don't carry cash very often, this minimalistic approach still works for me.

Blown away.
Review for: Walnut Burl - Minimalist Wood Wallet

Everyone that I’ve shown this wallet to was blown away. It’s become my favorite item to carry around. Very original and very cool. Carved always gets it right with their products. Keep it up.
