11 days till Christmas…Santa wants to know if you can you keep a Secrid?

Secrid wallets are known for their infamous cardprotector. As times are forever changing so are the use of bills and coins. Modern day technology has allowed us to carry high-tech cards with built in computer chips, which holds a lot of our personal information. Although, this is quite convenient it does allow for hackers out there to scan the chips through our wallets and use the information to carry out identity theft and fraud. Another word for this could also be digital pickpocketing.

Secrid’s aluminum cardprotector is designed with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. This blocks the scanners, by acting like a firewall, from being able to read the computer chips embedded in our cards, thus, offering us a peace of mind and protection.

All Secrid wallets are made with fine detail and care in the Netherlands. The cardprotector is the heart of the Secrid wallet’s design however the wallet also features a unique card slide, is crafted with quality leather and boasts a sleek and stylish design.

Give the gift of safety, comfort and style this holiday season with the Secrid wallet. Versatile, functional and esthetically pleasing and this product also comes with a 2-year warranty.

Jetsam Wallets

I first heard of Jetsam in New York while attending the gift show.  It was a pleasure to meet Laura the designer of Jetsam.  We are happy to be representing them here in Vancouver, BC.

About Jetsam Wallets Debut

Jetsam was inspired by the time-honored style of iconic male figures. I’ve taken historic masculine textiles and reinterpreted them for the future. It’s old-school haberdashery for the guy who doesn’t wear a suit.

The initial Jetsam line-up includes 4 editions of the classic 3-pocket billfold.

  • The Prepster edition features dapper patterns and traditional hues from reclaimed classic neckties
  • The Uncle Larry edition features bold patterns and bright colors from reclaimed retro 70s-era neckties
  • The Natty Professor edition features classic tweed herringbone from reclaimed vintage men’s jackets
  • The Spiffy Lumberjack edition features colorful plaids from reclaimed vintage shirts

I’m all about sustainability, so I’ve made Jetsam as eco-friendly as possible. Jetsam is a 16th-century term for unwanted material that was thrown overboard to lighten a ship’s load. Each Jetsam wallet is a product of unwanted or discarded materials, such as end-run fabrics, cast-off clothing and vintage textiles.

Each wallet also comes packaged in a recycled gift box, perfect for gift-giving.

 

Company History

Jetsam WalletsIn August of 2011, Jetsam™, a new line of eco-friendly wallets made from vintage menswear, made its debut. The roots of Jetsam lie in a handmade line founded in 2007.  It started off as a micro-enterprise, with all products manufactured in-house by designer and founder Laura Skelton. Inspired by the retro style of 70s men’s fashion, the Necktie Wallet® debuted that first year.  2009 marked the introduction of several new reconstructed wallet designs. After nearly four years of growth, the new Jetsam line continues to embody a commitment to sustainable and socially responsible practices, sourcing vintage and end-run materials and recycled packaging in addition to keeping production close to home, so you can feel good about what you keep in your pocket.

Since her early teenage years, Laura has concocted refashioned accessories and clothing from vintage materials, roaming the aisles of thrift stores and costume departments for inspiration. When she’s away from Jetsam, Laura loves creating elaborate costumes and clothing from interesting junk. A dress she constructed entirely from the Sunday New York Times was recently featured in several international newspapers, and a handbag she crafted from an old childrens’ sleeping bag was published in the book Refashioned Bags.
