Montblanc started way back in 1925 with a high-quality fountain pen. Since then this brand has spread to all corners of the globe and has become a household name in luxury goods. They are committed to high-quality goods and procedures in all steps of their process. They source their leather from ethically raised and slaughtered cows, they employ the services of the most respected tanneries in Europe, and all of their products offer a two year warranty, all you need to do is bring your wallet to one of their shops or mail it to one of their warehouses.
But the most impressive thing about this company isn’t their high-quality goods, but their ethics and commitment to human advancement. One example of their dedication to charity is that from June 1st, 2009 all the way to May 31st, 2010 this company donated 10% of their retail price to Unicef’s Educational Programs. They pledged up to $1.5 million. The company then repeated this feat in 2013, but that time they exceeded their original donation of 1.5 million dollars by about 5 million dollars.
The ethics of the company is a different story though. This article is about their wallets, so read on to discover the reviews of three of their most popular wallets.
