As a textile design and development team, Tesler + Mendelovitch create totally original, never-before-seen materials, transforming them into high quality custom-made products for industry, art and fashion. Their recent work has resulted in the transformation of wood into a new textile. Inspired by the texture, properties, and appearance of wood they researched the potential of integrating these opposing elements to form new product identities. The team have developed their geometric wood surface material into several products, recently launching "Wearable Wood" - a new series of totally original, luxurious clutch purses. These architectural looking, artisanal ”wood skin” purses are constructed from 100% wood. 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 their designs is hand-selected, individually and meticulously crafted to a high-quality standard.
