Ocean Square WalletABWOSQ.ws
The Ocean Square Wallet is made from reclaimed packaging paper that is fused for strength and coated (with an environmentally friendly treatment) to be water-resistant.
Inspired by the meeting of two of the most energetic ocean currents off the shores of South Africa, local artist Sharon Bonzaaier painted this design. From the delicate shy shark to the playful penguin this artwork radiates life. Whether you prefer to watch the whales from the shoreline or dive in the kelp forests, there is something for you to find.
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE WWF. With a growing global human population and encroaching coastal development, the long-term survival of marine ecosystems – and the many people that rely on them -are under threat. A percentage of the sale of every A BEAUTIFUL WORLD product is donated to the WWF to support the education, conservation, and preservation of our precious shores and oceans.
Featured in this design: *A swimming shoal of fish is gold foiled onto the design.
How is it made? Each artwork-come-design is a labor 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.
