How is it made? Each artwork-come-design is a labour of love that starts with Sharon spending many nights painting a myriad of little creatures and plant-life. The next step is to scan these beautiful artworks at a very high resolution so that even the most minute detail is captured. Once digitized, the placement of the visual elements is meticulously worked out according to the technical patterns of each WREN item: a laptop sleeve, an iPad cover, a notebook organizer, and or a wallet.
The designs are then digitally printed onto Wren’s special “cement” paper that has been reclaimed from packaging print factories and handed over to Wren’s expert team of makers. The paper is hand cut, fused to cotton to add durability, stitched with great care, and sprayed with Nano Liquid Glass (an environmentally-friendly coating), to be water resistant.
This wallet is special because it looks to careful and clever construction. It is made from a single paper piece that is folded to be the precise size for your cards and cash.
The last step in the making process is the wrapping of the label and application of the unique story and WWF contribution sticker. These processes take quite a bit of time, but we think it is worth it. Sharon and Wendren are very proud of and excited about what they have achieved with every item that leaves each of their studios.
Features: Held together with precise folds and stitch, the Square Wallet has 4 card pockets – each that can hold multiple cards, a centre bill fold and a hidden coin compartment. This coin compartment fits flush between the back and the middle layer of the wallet and is our favourite feature making this wallet truly unique.
All sections are held tight by a central magnet that closes each side with a satisfying snap!
