Since 1990, we – 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 2009, the Cardprotector was born. In 1990 we established the design agency Design Service International (DSI). Later, DSI was converted as SPIRID creation. For twenty years, we and our creative team have been contributory in product innovations for companies such as Maxi-Cosi, KPN telecom, Sitecom and Quooker. While working on various products concerned with electronic payment for Postbank, ING and Rabobank, we became involved in the introduction of the Dutch debit cards, Chipper and Chipknip.
Consumers were not satisfied with the growing number of plastic cards that their wallets were not suited for. In 1997, this inspired us to develop the first card holder – the Bodycard.
The Bodycard, just as our following products, was produced in the Netherlands.
In 2008 we chose to follow our big dream: a house brand and product line, developed from our own vision. We put all our knowledge and experience to work to design the ultimate card holder. In 2009, we launched the Secrid Cardprotector on the market, which won us a Red Dot Design Award in 2010. In the same year, we started marketing our own line of leather wallets. In 2012, we won the Aluminium Award with our Miniwallet.
We are proud of the awards we've won and our Secrid products are already being sold in 38 countries. Our dream has become reality and we continue to develop new products. Follow our most recent developments on Instagram and Facebook.
