Wallets as Art For Father's Day

The Diagonal Wallet in Black, Cognac, Brown and Cream

The wallet is a classic choice for Father's Day gift giving, and this year you can elevate it to an art form with Hester van Eeghen's contemporary and thoughtful designs.

Hester believes men should be allowed a little color in their lives too. To help ease them into a colorful place, Hester designs many of her wallets for men to appear conservative on the outside, and then surprising and bold inside.

The intricate hand work is all performed by amazing Italian craftsmen who create these beautiful works of art one by one from soft Italian calfskin.

There are three basic wallet styles in the HVE US collection for Men: the Diagonal, the Stair and the Money Clip Wallet.

The first of these is the Diagonal Wallet. Shown above and below, the exterior is a conservative black leather, beautifully soft and supple. Inside, a colorful array of diagonal angles hold 8 credit cards, the billfold section has two compartments and is large enough to hold international currency, and there are four additional sections for receipts and other items.

For the more adventurous dads you know, is the Stair Wallet. The stair-stepped shape of the flap is an homage to the tops of the canal homes in Hester's home town of Amsterdam. This wallet comes in a variety of exterior colors. The interior is a burst of color to make you smile, even though when you open your wallet you are usually paying the bill.

the multi-colored interior.

And then there is the HVE Money Clip Wallet for the men who prefer a slimline profile. Cash is held in the center money clip, and there is room for plenty of credit cards to boot. Exterior colors are subdued and the interiors are simple and chic color combinations.

  1. I agree with you that Wallet is a great gift which has been give and take from many years however at this Christmas i wants to give something new and interesting.
    these wallets are beautiful and great its quite clear however i wants to give something different.

  2. I want to get this for my fiance for Father's Day. A colorful, bright one because the dark one's he can't see in his van at night. So this colorful wallet should be easier for him to see even if it's dark out.
