As a textile design and development team, we incubate and create totally original, never-before-seen materials, transforming them into high quality custom-made products for industry, art and fashion. Creating original materials from “the ground up” demands an intensive incubation period of careful thought, experimentation, research and tremendous effort to convert our vision into a unified aesthetic, technical and functional product
Our recent work has resulted in the transformation of wood into a new textile. The texture, properties and appearance of our “wearable wood” series as a simultaneously delicate, flexible, durable material, we researched the potential of integrating these opposing elements to form new product identities.
These architectural looking, artisanal ”wood skin” clutches are constructed from 100% wood, 100% hide. While the geometric surface design provides necessary flexibility, the wood texture is soft to the touch, at once both delicate and wear resilient. Featuring a magnetic clasp and a soft underbelly for a comfortable grip, all wood used in our designs is hand-selected, individually and meticulously crafted to a high quality standard. Due to the natural grain and tone changes in wood, each clutch will differ slightly and no two will ever be identical. This item is Made To Order so please allow a little extra time for its production and dispatch.
