Carrying New Truth is a spur to travel somewhere new - by trying on ‘new eyes’. Its artist tore through boundaries in her creation of the new. Its writer studied society, memory and self in an epic search for happiness. Both challenged and changed perceptions. Here, the fruits of their work combined call you to travel, with new eyes, to New Truth.
New Truth comes in a stunning magnetic closure book-style box and includes an exquisite Exploration Card.

"Gradation In Colours" by Sophie Taeuber-Arp 1939
Sophie Taeuber-Arp was was a prolific, key figure in the European avant-garde movements of the early 20th century. She traversed disciplines, challenging, cross-fertilizing and reinventing them as she went. Gradation In Colour beautifully expresses her inter-disciplinary influence and subtle understanding of the interplay between colour and form. The symmetry combined with the undulating, incrementally shifting curved shapes give a sense of playful purpose, momentum and energy.

From "The Prisoner" by Marcel Proust 1913
New Truth’s words are a popular adaptation of a phrase which comes from the fifth volume of Marcel Proust’s celebrated masterpiece In Search Of Lost Time. They encapsulate Prousts thinking on art and also his core philosophy on how best to live life; cast away the heavy cloak of habit and feel the world anew.
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 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 wallets are designed and made to be something you love for a lifetime.
