  • Wallet Overview

      Handcrafted in England, the workmanship and leather quality of an ART WRD credit card wallet mean it will adjust to hold up to 6 credit cards. It also has such depth of meaning that it's the perfect thoughtful gift. For others - and for yourself.

      Build Utopia brings two explosively creative figures together. Both fearlessly smashed conventions to create new forms and meaning. Their visionary work calls us to create our own material and moral universe. To create ourselves. To Build Utopia.

      Build Utopia comes in a stunning magnetic closure book-style box and includes an exquisite Exploration Card.

  • The art

    • "Composition with rectangles, squares and set circles" by Sophie Taeuber-Arp 1939

      Prolific and pioneering, Taeuber-Arp is a giant of the 20th-century avant-garde. With courageous joy, she worked across disciplines to shift perception and change society. In this abstract piece, we see an interplay between colour and form resulting in tension and also equilibrium. Without worldly representation, using the geometric building blocks of the universe, she reaches for utopia with a persuasively satisfying, resonant image.

  • The words

    • From "Jerusalem: The Emanation of the Giant Albion" by William Blake 1804 - 1820

      These words come from the finale of Blake's 'prophetic books'. They are remarkable in their form - etched in handwriting, accompanied by sketches, figures, and huge full etching plate illustrations. They are remarkable in concept - forming no less than a visionary, private mythology filled with complex symbolism. One which resonates with increasing relevance as history unfolds. In Build Utopia's words, Blake states his non-negotiable criteria for life. In this book, we see the fruits of its fulfillment.

  • Handcrafted in England

    • Wallets are 97x70mm. Our high quality leather adjusts to hold up to 4 credit cards, a driving licence and a few cardboard cards/tickets or 6 credit cards.

      ART WRD card wallet leather is created from an ancient Italian technique using 100% natural, non-toxic, tannins from plants. These give the leather an unmistakable warm and brilliant shade that becomes more intense with daily use and the passing of time.

      In Nottingham, England we work with leather printing pioneers. Utilizing their specialist procedures, artworks are re-created like a tattoo, with ink absorbing deeper into the leather, resulting in unparalleled colour vibrancy, image quality and colour durability.

      Just across the Nottinghamshire Wolds in Melton Mowbray our credit card wallets are handcrafted in small batches using traditional methods. This, along with the natural variation in these artisan products, means each one is unique. Expertly made to the very highest quality, they are full-leather (no nylon inners), double-stitched at pressure points and then lined with leather for durability, accessibility, and refinement.

      In short, ART WRD credit card wallets are designed and made to be something you love for a lifetime.
