I love these handmade, one of a kind wallets by Slaughterhead.
They remind me a little bit of a sewn, smaller Rothko painting. One thing I find particularly interesting about them is the level of haphazardness in their style...It's almost beyond what it should be, but I think it works really well in the wallet/clutch flat form. I adore how the different materials sort of collide to form something functional-- a wallet, an envelope clutch. To me, thus far, Slaughterhead's best products are the ones like these wallets, where layer upon layer of vinyl and sewing make something useful but so sculptural/paintinglike-- Looking at them, you can really appreciate the materials for what they are.
I've seen a lot of people try and make handmade wallets, and somehow, they never seem quite *there*, almost like they are trying to look mass-produced and too perfect-- and when you're sewing something yourself, well, that is often a pipe dream. What I like about these is that the handmade quality is so obvious and unapologetic. It lets these products be just exactly what they are, without sacrificing style, actually, it celebrates how they were made. So GOOD!
