Being a third generation descendant of a carpenter, I cannot possibly renounce my innate affinity for all things made out of wood. The thing is; it forms such an integral part of my makeup. Imagine my animated smirk and out-of-control phone calls to my granddad when I discovered WeWOOD’s 100% eco-chic timepieces on Smacs*.co.za. I was flash-backed to growing up around loads of cut-out blocks and witnessing something amazing made out of tree. Now I am a grown fashion person and I get to wear beautiful things made out of trees, without looking like a corny tourist. (I have seen earrings resembling the Big 5… Tacky much!?) These lightweight, hypo-allergenic and high-tech pieces will make for amazing gifts this coming spring (HIIIINT). They are made out of all natural timber and appreciatively care to benefit the planet too. Yup, on a green drift steez. WeWOOD will plant a tree for every watch purchased. Pick a piece and do some good. The wide variety includes Teek, Maple, Delicate Blackwood, Army Guaiaco, Red Wing Celtis and Chocolate Indian Rosewood. Some of my favourites are here below.
