New to The Pen Shop are Secrid Wallets whose products protect credit card information from being read by wireless card readers.
Secrid Wallets design and manufacture in the Netherlands where they have developed their production process themselves in close collaboration with their manufacturers. Secrid work with specialist manufacturers such as a modern leather studio housed in a historic warehouse in the heart of Schiedam. In the production process, original materials are combined with modern technologies, ensuring good working conditions and high quality products. For this reason, Secrid Wallets offer a two-year guarantee.
Since 1990 Secrid owners René van Geer (Technical University [TU] Delft) and Marianne van Sasse van IJsselt (Charles Montaigne Fashion Academy) have been active in the field of design. In 2008 they chose to follow their big dream: a house brand and product line, developed from their own vision. Secrid put all their knowledge and experience to work to design the ultimate card holder. In 2009, they launched the Secrid Cardprotector on the market, and this won the Red Dot Design Award in 2010. In 2010, they started marketing their own line of leather wallets. In 2012 Secrid won the Aluminium Award with the Cardprotector.
The Cardprotector is the core of the Secrid product line. The aluminium Cardprotector protects your six most important cards, both against bending and breaking and against your RFID cards being scanned if you don’t want them to be (such as the transportation pass, ID card, the latest credit cards and business cards).
