By 2009 the leather industry had practically abandoned the Netherlands. Secrid brought this industry back home. 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 this tiny country.
For centuries, cash served as the primary method of payment. The arrival of high-tech cards caused a rapid replacement of these traditional means. This new era of technology calls for a new type of wallet. One that protects your cards and money, but also your privacy.
No more bending and breaking
Sitting on a traditional wallet in your back pocket causes plastic cards to bend and become more liable to break. With an aluminum core, Secrid wallets protect your cards while remaining small enough to fit in any pocket.
RFID / NFC protected
Modern cards, such as travel cards, credit cards and access cards, contain a chip and antenna for wireless communication. These RFID (Radio-Frequency IDentification) or NFC (Near Field Communication) cards increase convenience, but consequently the risks too. They can be read, activated and cloned from a metre away, without you noticing. The Secrid Cardprotector, the aluminum heart of all our wallets, protects your cards from these kinds of unwanted wireless communication.
Thanks to our patented mechanism and the aluminum casing of the Cardprotector, your cards remain protected even during use. By revealing only a portion of the cards, the sensitivity for the radio signal is substantially reduced but sufficient for contact over short distances. By minimizing the exposure, you remain outside the reach of digital pickpockets, even while using your cards.
