Sustainable, Luxury Fashion Accessories: A JORD Wallet Review

I have this wallet clutch. It's purple with a removable strap for easy toting. It's been my favorite for years now. However, there isn't a checkout I frequent that hasn't been gifted with material fragments from this special, purple wallet.  It's past time for an upgrade. So, needless to say JORD's timing to review a high-quality, eco-friendly luxury wallet clutch couldn't be better.

Back in the summer I reviewed one of their wood watch designs and loved it. There's something about works of art inspired by nature that draws me. And how the wallet is designed and manufactured is so fascinating! So as you've already guessed, I agreed to review this SUBERHIDE, sustainable wallet clutch. I'll explain more about suberhide, and an amazing cork oak tree from Portugal later in the post.

Beautiful Design

The first aspect of this wallet I noticed from out of the box, is how gorgeous the color is. I loved the bright blue, textured with black. The gold details really pop adding more luxury to this sturdy vegan leather wallet.

There are 8 card slots, a zipper pouch in the center and surprisingly enough space for my smart phone. It's smooth, lightweight and easy to carry. I'm still impressed that my smartphone fits in there with a little extra space for lip gloss and keys (depending on the size of your keyring!).

Sustainable Fashion
Ok, here's where my heart skipped a beat. Did you know there's a cork oak tree (Quercus Suber) in Portugal with bark that can be harvested every nine years without killing the tree? Me neither! In fact, the boys and I recently learned the parts of a tree in botany this year. There I was reminded of how critical the bark is to the tree, so I guess that was a nerdy moment for me. This cork is where suberhide begins.

Combined with vegan leather, Suberhide is:
  • Durable
  • Scratch-resistant
  • Hypoallergenic
  • water-resistant
  • Flame retardant
  • Anti-static
  • Highly elastic and maintains shape after compression or creasing
  • Stain-Resistant
  • Easily cleaned with soap and water
Also, JORD uses an eco-friendly powder dye that uses less water with less dye run off, thereby leaving less of an impact on the environment.

Beautiful, Better for The Environment, Practical

The Eila Wallet is $89 with free shipping and handling. The wallet also comes with a gorgeous box and dust bag for storage. Of course this makes gifting so much easier as well!

  1. What a great wallet! I have a couple JORD wood watches but I didn't know they made other accessories! this looks so fun! :) I like your outfit too.

    Thanks for the link up! Hope that your week is going well :)

    Away From Blue

    1. Thank you lovely. They recently launched their wallets and purses. I'd be so curious as to what you thought of their handbags. AFterall, I believe you to be the handbag guru! ;)

  2. Looks like one fantastic wallet of course owned by the cutest girl!

  3. Love the color as well and the functionality had me really impressed. I am still trying to wrap my brain around being able to fit a phone in there. Also, I really like the looks of their watches that you featured as well. Happy Wednesday.

    1. Yes, me too Bojana. And it's funny when I opened I said, it's not going to fit my 8+ cell phone. Well it does. I love it. Guess I need to take a picture of that as well!

  4. What a pretty color this wallet is! I also love this mix of textures it has. Thanks for sharing. I thought Jordens only carried watches!

    1. Me too! I'm so excited for the company and their unique designs, commitment to sustainability and quality. Let's see where this goes for them! And thank you for stopping by Kathrine!

  5. I didn't know Jord made wallets too! That color is gorgeous and I love that it's made from sustainable materials!

    1. Girl I know. This wallet is so nice. The only thing I'd say it is missing would be the clear slot for the license. Guess I should add that to the design panel/suggestions! Such a cool idea they have there!

  6. It's a great wallet, but I really love those pants! So cute!

  7. I'm glad you were able to replace your old wallet! I know the post is all about your new one, but you've created an outfit around it that is spectacular, my friend!

    1. You're so sweet Kim and funny too. And I'm glad I was able to replace my old wallet. It was a little ridiculous. I should be ashamed of myself for toting that baby around.

  8. I should have guessed the pants were XCVI! I really like them! I am impressed the wallet fits your phone too. With or without a phone case? Nice color choice.

    1. Haha, I know I'm wearing those XCVI clothes on repeat. As for the wallet, my phone fits in there with the case on. And my case a medium "thickness" I'd say.

  9. That really is a gorgeous wallet, Chrissy! I love the shade of blue and the cool cork finish. And your outfit is brilliant, too. This color combination is so great for transition into spring and those sandals are killer! Love it all.


  10. Ok...I'm not much on the watches but that wallet is CUTE! I love the color.

  11. I had no idea that JORD did anything other than watches! It's such a cute wallet xo

  13. I just got the same JORD wallet! I'm so excited and the color is so pretty in person! I'm so glad to see you love yours!

  14. Great job my friend and pretty wallet/clutch. My old wallet was that same design and I loved grabbing it when I wanted to run in. I've since downsized though. My purse had gotten too heavy. XOXO

  15. Wow I didn't know they sold wallets! It is super cute and looks like it holds a good amount!

  16. Looks good! I love it when wallet s are like little cute clutches.

  17. This is a gorgeous look on you and I love that clutch!! The color is so pretty!

  18. Yay to sustainable fashion! That wallet is gorgeous!
