Indian Summer Card Holder

£85.00 GBP

  • Wallet Overview

      Handcrafted in England, the workmanship and leather quality of an ART WRD 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 men or women (they're unisex) - or just for yourself.

      Here the artwork is a late period explosion of playful, creative joy from seminal artist Arthur Dove. The words capture the fresh delight of an unexpected resurgence of life force. Combined they make Indian Summer a sliver of ripe sunshine bliss to carry with you everywhere you go.

      Indian Summer comes in a stunning magnetic-close book style box with an exquisite Exploration Card included.

  • The art

    • "Indian Summer" by Arthur Dove 1941

      Mysterious, sensual and playful. One of Arthur Dove's later works where he transcended illness to produce some of his most sublime creations. This painting glows with rich life force and suggests a deep connection and universality in nature and humankind.

  • 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 holder 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 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 card holder wallets are designed and made to be something you love for a lifetime.
