Derek says:

Each wallet is ENTIRELY handcrafted from start to finish—the way skilled leather craftsmen have been doing for thousands of years.

  • All of the leather is carefully measured by hand.
  • The leather is intricately cut by hand.
  • Every thread hole on your wallet is individually punched by hand.
  • All of the tailoring and constructing is meticulously done by hand.
  • The Waskerd logo is embroidered by hand.
  • All of the stitching is sewn completely by hand with a needle and thread.
  • The edges are finished with a light hand sanding.

Waskerd’s Story

‘My brother and I grew up making wooden go-karts, skateboards, and surfboards; whittling wooden fishing lures, rings, and anything else we could think of in our “no girls allowed” wood shop in Williamsburg, Va.  Our projects grew more and more sophisticated as we got older—they demanded higher quality craftsmanship and greater attention to detail. I didn’t realize my affinity for creating things during my youth would have such an impact on my future.’

‘After college, I moved to New York to work in finance. While living in NYC my friend Billy and I came up shorthanded in our search for a slim, front pocket wallet—we wanted something that was unique, but at the same time, simple and fashionable. With my skills and Billy’s encouragement, I bought leather tools and made my first few wallets. We were excited about the results and everyone we showed them to shared our excitement.  After many late night discussions on Billy’s rooftop in Astoria, Waskerd was born.’


‘Coming full circle from “no girls allowed,” in 2011 I moved to Philadelphia to chase the girl of my dreams. I currently live in Philadelphia and make every wallet completely by hand in my studio in Manayunk.  Thanks for supporting a small company and a local craftsman!’
-Derek Shaw

    My Fiance (soon to be husband in Dec) has a wallet at the moment which is falling apart and he just stuffs everything into, these wallets are so wonderfully made that I think it would be lovely to get him one which is personalised and a fresh start and keep all the money in to buy me clothes with!! hehe well lets face it as soon as he is married he gets to spend all of his money on me so the wallet will be lovely just to carry the cards in as the money will have been spent!!! ;-)

    My fiance doesn’t have a wallet at the moment – he is using a rubber band! I would love to give him a beautiful handcrafted wallet to use instead. :)

    Facebook page liked – what an awesome little company, and such lovely things. I know my almost-husband will LOVE one of these wallets on the morning of our wedding – they’re so beautifully made and look gorgeous and rustic and ever so slightly unusual. I have my eye on some bits for my dad’s upcoming birthday too! x
