Song Of The Soul 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 others - and for yourself.

      Here, art is from the kaleidoscopic genius Paul Klee. The words come from a poem vibrating with its ecstatic plea to cast the cloak from your soul and experience the universe pure and free. Together they make Song Of The Soul a celebration of variety. A call to embrace the rich tapestry of life.

      Song Of The Soul comes in a stunning magnetic closure book-style box and includes an exquisite Exploration Card.

  • The art

    • "Park Near Lu" by Paul Klee 1938

      Mentioned in the same breath as Picasso and Mattise, the innovative and prolific Paul Klee was himself an artist of huge variety. His work encompassed many moods, but here we have a beautifully full, vibrant work that also achieves a  balance - of form, colour and emotion. The park near Lucerne was where Klee visited his sick wife. He depicts black branches contrasting strongly with varying colours of foliage. This suggests we are looking at all seasons of the park at once, from death through to birth again. Life in all its intense variety.

  • The words

    • From "The Song Of The Soul" by Edwin Liebfreed 1913

      The words come from a poem whose title we've also used as the name for this ART WRD wallet. By a relatively unknown poet, it starts impassioned and builds from there - it's a visceral cry, embracing goodness, beauty, love, and life - in their many shades, in all their pain and glory.

  • 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.

      The leather we use to make our card holders 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 card holders 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 holders are designed and made to be something you love for a lifetime.
