In former times people used little pouches to carry their money, in Latin called ‘Crumilla’.
Designer Marcia Nolte wanted to make a wallet suiting your identity. According to her, a wallet is a personal and essential property which you carry day by day. From this point of view the Crumilla collection got its existence: unique, handmade wallets, in which choice of colour and the radiation of the leather is given the most attention to.

The whole CRUMILLA Collection is produced in my studio in Amsterdam North. Between the walls of the old shipyard NDSM I run my own design studio since 2011, where I work in concept and product design. I favour to work with everyday materials and behavings and challenge myself and the viewer to acknowledge the quality of it.
During the design process, research plays an important part. An extensive search for technical and (art)historical information proceeds the designing. In this way I trie to capture the roots of the material and from here reconstruct the design.
