"Decorative Panel III" by Tom Thomson 1915 - 1916
The Canadian wilderness inspired the late flourishing of Tom Thomson turning him into one of the country's greatest ever artists. Here Art Nouveau and graphical stylized influences are evident, combined with Thomson's distinctive colours. Dense trees laden with autumn glory are shot through with the blue beyond, conjuring mystery, adventure and the majestic freedom of the wilds.

From XXXIII in "Echoes of Life and Death" by William Ernest Henley 1908
Our words make up the third and last verse of this poem, written by the author of Invictus ('I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul'). He creates here a giddy celebration of nature and the joyful meaning it can bring to our lives.
In witnessing his profound love of life and Nature we can understand, perhaps, the inspirational counterbalance to his powerful work on courage and determination.
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 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 card wallets are designed and made to be something you love for a lifetime.
