I bought this salmon skin wallet in 2015 at the Iceland Museum of Design and Applied Art. It has been full used up and is falling apart at the seams. I was sentimental about this wallet and felt bad about parting with it, but I knew I needed a replacement.
There are a number of salmon skin wallets on Amazon, but I decided to try and find something not-amazon, maybe a bit more artisanal. I came across Fiskur Leather, a guy who “specializes in exotic fish leathers imported form Iceland”. I purchased a wallet made of salmon and kangaroo leather, and I hope it will last me AT LEAST as long as my last one, and I think it should, it feels pretty sturdy.
The wallet arrived last week, but this arrived today.
Can you guess what it is?
The answer is below.
It’s a big dog friend. I ordered it months ago after seeing someone on the forums posting about it. Pictured here with my small dog friend.
The wallet and the palamute were both kind of belated birthday gifts to myself.
