Yes, Tärnsjö is also a Swedish tannery. Real high quality vegetable tanned leather. Used to be supplier to Hermès and Louis Vuitton. Don't quote me on this, but I think Hermès and LVMH tried to push down the prices too much, and I get that in a way because supplying big fashion houses is good for your brand (The tannery in this case) But also today both Hermès and LVMH own a lot of the tanneries that produce their leather. 

Why do I like this leather? I really like the semi-aniline finish. It gets a patina, but not as extreme as a pure aniline leather.

Thank you,

On this wallet I "stabbed/punched" out the top of the pockets shape with a Japanese skiving knife, and cut the rest with a snap-off knife. (Olfa SAC-1)
