Our Wooden Watches, Handmade in our Workshop
-- The Wooden Fashion Accessory business Plantwear is launching in the UK. They will primarily be selling online through www.plantwear.co.uk. Their initial offering is made up of 20 styles of wooden watches and 24 types of sunglasses. All are made of different varieties of wood including Oak, Maple, Ebony and Rosewood.
Explaining what is different about Plantwear Simon Day, the UK Distributor, said “There are other companies that make wooden fashion accessories but these are often mass produced in the far east, our products are handmade by craftsmen in our own workshops in Europe. The skill and care that they are made with is inspiring”.
The company philosophy is to give more than it takes, for example it plants more trees than it uses in the manufacture of its products.
Because wood is a natural component no two watches are exactly the same, each will have its own unique grain and colour. Unlike other watches and sunglasses these products will take on more character as they age. They will make the perfect gifts for the 5th
Wedding Anniversary which is known as the Wooden Anniversary.
