First, natural wood made its way into the world of interior design. Now it is fashion’s turn. The search for different textures and materials has inspired the most creative minds to go that one step further, with wood as the focal point of this process of reinvention.

In recent posts we have already told you how wood has been making its mark in the textile industry, thanks to its environmentally friendly and biodegradeable properties. Sunglasses, imitation jewellery and handbags made from wood are only the start of this mini-revolution. Today, at Wood Lovers, we will show you many more.

Made in wood style

More and more brands are putting their faith in real wood for their products. The Spanish make Woodsenson, for example, manufactures watches from bamboo wood which is both environmentally friendly and fast-growing. The naturally engraved finishes give the watches a traditional look without being too classical. Furthermore, the company lets you engrave any phrase or drawing on the watches, for those who want an exclusive and lasting keepsake.

If you want to be the most original guest at the party, go for it with a wooden bow tie from the Spanish make, Mr Trend. They come in a wide range of colours to complement any outfit and they all come with a matching scarf, but only for the most daring.

The artistic streak

Art is not only present in museums, but also on the street. From ethnic high heeled shoes with wooden soles to ankle boots carved out of wood, miniature drawings can be engraved into the sole to make them into a true work of art. We have no idea how comfortable they are, but at least you know you will be wearing something unique.

Not everything is about fashion. The passion for wood has also reached some of the cutting-edge sectors, with technological gadgets such as wooden keyboards, loudspeakers, headphones and even calculators. There is no doubt about it, wood is in fashion. Dare to be different.
