  • Wallet Overview

      Handcrafted in England, the workmanship and leather quality of an ART WRD card holder 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.

      In Goddess Of The Dawn we carry daybreak as she blooms in the hearts of humankind; sacred and transcendent like the soft, intense carnival of Jawlensky’s artwork. Glorious, like Homer’s ringing words.

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

  • The art

    • "Abstract Head: Aurora" by Alexej von Jawlensky 1931

      The Abstract Head paintings are a remarkable series of modern icons. Over and over Jawlensky abstracts the human face, shifting form and colour to transform each artwork. Every painting is powerfully their own yet also, unmistakably, one. "Aurora" (the name for the Roman Goddess of the dawn) has a  profound, transcendent glow, its colours radiate hope, making it the perfect image for our celebration of the dawn.

  • The words

    • From "The Iliad" by Homer 8th Century BC

      Our words are from the Alexander Pope translation of the Iliad and written by ‘the father of literature’, Homer. Homer may or may not have existed, but these words, 2700 (or so) years after their initial conception, exist in front of you now. And they still make you catch your breath. Combined with Jawlensky's "Aurora", this ART WRD offering to the dawn takes flight. Majestic, spiritual and transcendent.

  • 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 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 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 designed and made to be something you love for a lifetime.
