- SINCE 1917
The standard men's wallet, the bi-fold billfold. The current series of this wallet is made with a thin design, with 4 card pockets and a one room coin purse, simply and neatly sewed. It is compact enough to be stored in the pocket of a jacket or pants without getting in the way.
The wallet of the CERVO series was a challenge to make thin. The natural grain unique to deerskin is utilized while making it thin. Although it may seem contradictory, wallets should be thin, strong, and beautiful. The first step is to make the leather as thin as possible, while retaining the natural texture of the deerskin tanned by the Vachetta method. Then, fluffy sheep leather is used for the lining material, which is then laminated to the cut pieces so as not to lose the original texture. Although deerskin is said to be too soft and difficult to polish the edges, GANZO focused on every detail of this product to polish and put together.
Cervo (Italian for deer skin) is a rare vegetable-tanned deerskin. It is tanned by a small tannery in Santa Croce, Italy, using only raw hides from New Zealand with the Vachetta method. The most distinctive feature of this leather is the fusion of the plumpness of the thick deerskin and the tight tannin texture.
*Vachetta method: A traditional Italian leather manufacturing method with a history of more than 1,000 years, in which all processes are done by hand. Now, this technique is only slightly inherited by a historical tannery in Florence. The texture of each piece of leather is carefully finished to produce a unique and exquisite material. The leather is tanned using only vegetable tannin and soaked with oil extracted over a long period of time, which makes for a soft finish. The more it is used, the more the aging process can be enjoyed as the oil soaked into the leather oozes.

GANZO, the highest-quality line available anywhere, pursues the concept of “genuine” throughout the entire process, from the selection of materials, to cutting, thinning, sewing and polishing - without compromise. The persistence and energy of takumi (expert workmen) delivers products created by the hands of craftsman who are well-versed in Japanese culture and techniques.
Hida beef is used for the leather of GANZO's 7QS-H. Originally, cows are raised with an emphasis on meat quality, and raising the quality of the meat naturally leads to a higher quality of leather.
GANZO's products are made from bridle leather produced by J & E Sedgwick & Co. in the UK, who rely on traditional techniques and manufacturing methods handed down through generations.
The Horween Leather Company, a long-established tannery in Chicago, Illinois, was founded in 1905 by Isidore Horween. Isidore, who had worked in tanneries from a young age, came to the U.S. from Ukraine in 1892.
