Industrial design and fashion come together in our pocket-sized essentials. Made in Holland with great care for quality, people, and the environment. A better world starts in your pocket. The Cardprotector launched in 2009, but our Secrid journey started over a decade earlier. In the 1990s, we were running our design agency Spirid, when we noticed a shift in the content of our pockets as the first electronic payment systems were introduced in the Netherlands. In 1997, as cash made way for cards, we created our first minimal wallet: the Secrid Bodyguard.
By 2009 the leather industry had practically abandoned the Netherlands in favour of low-income countries. We bought this industry back to our home country. By developing a radically different product and production process, wallets are once again being produced on a large scale in The Netherlands. More efficiently and cleaner than ever, in a quantity never before seen in our tiny country.
Close cooperation with our 50 suppliers is therefore very important: from the sewing workshop in Vlaardingen to the social enterprise in Leiden. Producing in favourable conditions and with due care for the environment, we have already created more than 200 jobs in the Netherlands.
