Leather Card Holder
Simple, hand made card pockets in Whistlebare’s own vegetable tanned goat leather. With three card pockets and a central ‘note or receipt’ pocket these card holders are all you need to be carrying day to day.
Goat leather is soft but very robust and hardwearing and has a beautiful texture so is perfect for pocket leather goods. All our leather is tanned at ‘Billy Tannery’ in the midlands, please scroll down for more information.
All our leather goods are made by talented local leather smith Roslyn Whiting, again please scroll down for more details.

Roslyn lives in Melrose and has been using traditional methods to produce quality leather goods since 2011. Everything is designed and made, by hand, in her workshop in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Roslyn shares Whistlebare’s ethos and works with the best natural and locally sourced materials, using vegetable tanned leather and solid brass fittings. Roslyn designs everything she makes taking inspiration from the surrounding countryside.
Billy Tannery was founded in 2016 with the aim of turning goat skins, that were a waste product of the food industry into fabulous, sustainable leather. Tanning in small batches allows us them focus on the details, on crafting higher quality and more environmentally friendly leather.
Billy Tannery produces leather as it should be. Tanned entirely in Britain using bark extracts and an innovative microtannery process that recycles 90% of the water and turns waste into compost.
