Thomas began his journey into sustainable fashion with the decision to purchase a sewing machine and a desire to create something new. Thomas’s approach to design is a classic one: pencil and paper, trial and error, and repeat until perfection is achieved. After creating a prototype for chic cardholders, what started off as a few requests from friends soon blossomed into a business that allowed Thomas to share his designs with the world.
While style is important, Thomas also considers his environmental impact when creating his accessories. Thomas looks for eco-friendly and durable solutions such as polyurethane faux leathers for greener and animal-friendly alternatives to leathers. From Brentano’s extensive selection of faux leathers, Thomas chose Ravenswood to craft his luxurious cardholders. Ravenwood’s upscale colors matched perfectly with his aesthetic as well as meeting his environmental and performance criteria.
Thomas’s cardholders and mini wallets were inspired by his travels. From the people he met, to the new technology he encountered, his experiences abroad paved the way for creating cardholders from materials better suited for protecting the contents within them. Aimed toward consumers with an eye for minimalistic design and smart solutions, each Thomas Nox cardholder features a solid inner core for durability and is combined with the sophisticated look of polyurethane faux leathers.
Brentano aims to offer textiles that can give beauty and performance wherever needed and is thrilled to be featured on Thomas Nox cardholders. Our fabrics are primarily suited for contract, residential and healthcare projects, but we are always amazed and look forward to seeing what talented designers dream and create.
