Handmade extra-large clutch constructed from 100% birch wood, which is a species that grows wild throughout North America, and can be found in woods. It is most easily identified by its pure white bark that peels off the trunk in thin, paper-like layers. A boldly designed piece of wearable art with an architectural form, the larger clutch makes a striking visual statement even from a distance. Hand made with carefully selected wood and grain of the highest quality, the purses are lightweight and feature a comfortable grip with a generously spacious interior. Featuring a hidden magnetic clasp that closes silently, the geometric underbelly of the clutch provides flexibility and softness for a comfortable grip while the surface is sturdy and wear-resilient. The lining is made of black dyed leather. Each clutch is individually and meticulously hand crafted to a high quality standard and packaged in its own handmade wooden case. Due to the natural grain and tone changes in wood, each clutch will differ slightly and no two will ever be identical.

This collection manipulates a core material, turning it on its head by making a hard material soft and a soft material hard. Wearable Wood is the result of a three year process of development. We believe that the objects that we choose to live our life in must not only be aesthetically pleasing and functional but, most of all, feel like an extension of the human body.
