  • The art

    • "Reservoir Trees, North London" by Lucy Farley 2012

      Embossed on rich brown leather, the words of John Keats blend with this artwork to make a deeply satisfying ART WRD. Farley's trees emanate a permanence in relation to the town they foreground. In their stroke work they contain movement and life, whilst their density and colour invoke a feeling of reverence and mystery.

  • The words

    • From "On the Grasshopper and Cricket" by John Keats 1816

      John Keats' poem takes us on a journey from the blistering heat of summer to the bitterest part of winter and on into a drowsy imagination. The animals take up nature's song in relay across seasons. The song also enters man, who transfers it through his mind into a non-material, poetic realm.

  • Handcrafted in England

    • We use the best organic non-toxic leather

      ART WRD 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.

      Our pioneering printing lasts a lifetime

      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.

      Our wallets are crafted by highly-skilled, passionate people

      Just across the Nottinghamshire Wolds in Melton Mowbray our card holder 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 made to inspire you and be loved for a lifetime.
