The Bike Shed Motorcycle Club store in London is the only store that sells a limited selection of my handmade items. From the start of Duke & Sons Leather, my wife Ingeborg and I had a special relationship with our friends from The Bike Shed. it is always a pleasure to make new items for them. For the 2017 edition of the BSMC show at Tobacco Dock in London, we made this protective card holder. An aluminum housing that can hold 6 cards and protect them also against RFID scanning. The housing is not that excited so I converted it into a Duke & Sons look. Wearing it in your pocket will give it a better look and great patina over time. In this blog post, I show you how it is made.
