More than just cards and money, your wallet carries memories. It travels with you wherever you go. Designer couple Marianne van Sasse van Ysselt and René van Geer have revolutionised the wallet industry. Merging fashion and industrial design, they created a pocket-sized icon.
Traditions and revolutionary design meet in the Secrid cabinet, created for Secrid’s new head office. The Golden Age inspired photos underline Secrid’s heritage, as well as production process: all wallets are made in Dutch factories and social enterprises, creating more than 200 jobs and reviving the local leather industry.
