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 the Secrid journey started over a decade earlier. In the 1990s, they were running their own design agency Spirid, when they 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, they created our first minimal wallet: the Secrid Bodyguard.
By 2009 the leather industry had practically abandoned the Netherlands in favour of low-income countries. Secrid brought this industry back to their 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 their tiny country.
Close cooperation with the 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, Secrid has already created more than 200 jobs in the Netherlands.
