Charette Wallet


This three-card-slot wallet includes the write-anywhere Fisher Space Pen that we’re so fond of (here with a clip in matte black, silver, or polished brass options) and holds an included Rhodia A7 pocket size notebook.  We like this wallet as an alternative to our original notebook wallet–the Architect’s Wallet–because it adds a cover to keep the notebook from getting beat up if you’re not changing it out often enough, and dedicated card slots in a slightly larger footprint.

Dimensions: 123mm x 98mm (approximately 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″).

Customer Reviews

Based on 85 reviews

I've purchased about 7-8 of these Notebook/wallets since the the early days of the Architects Wallet. I personally own and use all 3 models of the wallets. I have found the wallets to be, not only one for EDC use by myself but also for that very special occasion in a Special friend or associates life. They are the epitome of the Bauhaus movement. Beautiful design, that not only looks fantastic, but also is perfect for EDC use. The leather and hand crafting are the highest quality available. The wallets will be what your grandchildren will fight over when your gone. An heirloom product, design, workmanship and materials that will last for generations. Their value for EDC use is 10 x what the cost of the item is. Buy with confidence, enjoy and use for ever. Great customer service, perfect design reasonably priced.

Unbelievable service and Unbelievable product

This wallet is single handedly the nicest leather good I have ever owned in my life. Everyone was super understanding and super helpful to help customize my wallet to accommodate my dad's lucky silver dollar. It is my most prized possession and knowing it will be safe inside the charette wallet is amazing. Thank y'all again and thank y'all for being amazing people!

Great slim notebook wallet!

So happy with my new Charette wallet! I previously owned an Architect wallet for 6 years and loved the convenience of always having a pen and paper, but the notebook was always getting torn up. The covered notebook in this model is still slim, and keeps things fresh and looking good.

I also like that this wallet is designed for a space pen with clip - after several years, my old Architect was a little bit stretched out, so the pen would fall out of the holder. I don’t think I’ll have that issue with this wallet.

Second charette, but first of the new design

I love my first charette, it's been a faithful companion for many years. When I realized that I needed a bit more room and a bigger notebook, I opted for the new design with a Rhodia notebook. Just like me first, this new charette is well crafted and fits perfectly in a front pocket. I have a feeling this won't be my last.

Totally in love with this piece!

I had a problem with my first order. I was worried that it was going to be overlooked since I am picky, but noticing how great the reviews are about FFF's customer service, I decided to send an email and ask my question. My first Charette had this extremely annoying habit of not covering the whole notebook. And it just did not aesthetically go with the great looks of the wallet. It was a decently big gap and just could not be overlooked. To my surprise, Shawn emailed me back directly and asked me for some photos so we could see what the problem was. After an email or two of photos, he saw my issue and told me he'd have something whipped up to fix it, or refund me. A couple of days later I got an email saying that they shipped something out my way. And wow, did Shawn really take care of me. I mean this thing was the Charette that I pictured, at least when I saw the photos and reviews. I think the problem has been fixed on all the production ones at the moment, since the photos also look exactly like what he sent me. I was very pleased with this and cannot recommend FFF enough! They took care of me as a customer, and delivered an incredible wallet that really is a conversation starter. I have always been one to use long lasting goods, and FFF has definitely produced that for me here. I am over the moon with the work and craftsmanship, and will always look to FFF and Shawn for any leather goods that I may need. Don't think, just buy. They will deliver. And if on the off change you have an issue like me, then Shawn will take care of you.

Concerning the Charette wallet itself, I think it is a masterpiece. I have been carrying it now for about 3 or 4 months now and wanted to wait a bit before a review. It has enough space for 3-6 cards, depending on where you put them/if you want to stretch the leather a bit, and also enough space for some cash. I also store some handwritten notes in the two small pockets that are created by putting the notebook inside the slot on th...

6 months and loving it

I bought this wallet 6 months ago and it's been getting better and more broken in every day. FFF has been awesome to deal with and I will continue to come back for more!

The Wallet is great

Compact, and fits the right amount of items! It’s great and very well made.

Cool Wallet

Great wallet (and matching watch!)
