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″).

“How do I know which color is which??” Select a leather color from the drop down menus below, and the photos will update to reflect your choice.

Check the Shipping Information page for our time to hand-craft your order and shipping options, and our pretty damn liberal return policy, in case the goods don’t work out for you.

Gift Message OR Special Instructions

If you’d prefer a (Twitter-sized) gift message to the recipient, instead of our typical thank-you note to the purchaser, let us know what you’d like on the card. You can also include any special instructions we may have asked you for if you chatted with us via email/messenger so we can make sure your order is perfect. Or, tell us what bourbon we really need to check out, or your favorite meme format…you’ve got 420 characters, go wild.

Heirloom wallet

I've gone thru a number of mid tier wallets that have lasted anywhere from 1-3 years before falling apart. I am 2 years into ownership and this is the best wallet I have ever bought. The nice thing about such high quality leather is that when the wallet inevitably stretches out it is easy to reshrink the wallet back to tightly gripping your cards.

Simple is best

I really appreciate designs that focus on the task at hand and do not complicate with unnecessary extras. Every time I pull this wallet out of my pocket to pay for an item or to write down a note it is just effortless and also a joy. Perfect thx!

Finally - a notebook wallet that fits in pockets

This is a beautiful and functional wallet. I've been searching for a wallet for ages that could house a notepad, pen, cash, and cards and still fit in a suit jacket pocket. This is the ONLY one I've found that can do it. And it looks and feels amazing. The leather and craftsmanship are both top notch. The wallet feels like a steal at this price point. And the custom engraving work is really a beautiful touch. I highly recommend this wallet.

Best wallet ever

A wonderful item designed around a terrific pen so you can capture whatever you like all day long. Am using it to work the Getting Things Done technique and I wish I’d done it 10 years ago but what the heck. Buy this item and don’t look back. Seriously.


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.
