Very thin leather used to wrap peices?

Recommended Posts

New to this leather making thing. Recently I made a knife sheath, and am finishing up a long wallet.  While making the wallet with 3 oz leather I realized rather than use this weight for both the interior panel and the outer shell, I would prefer to use something like 4-5 oz leather and then wrap it with a very thin piece of leather.  I've seen this done on some things, like my work kydex holster (probably not real leather) is wrapped. I've also see it in some womens wallets, a very thin layer of leather that is folded over the edges and sewn. Wondering what I am looking for. Is it just 1oz leather? Thank you.

Probably just very thin chrome tanned leather. (Garment/upholstery leather) Ian Atkinkson has a video on doing turned edges.
