I absolutely love things made out of renewable resources, like wood or coconut. Here are a few companies that have some great looking products made out of wood.
First up is ShWoodShop (http://shwoodshop.com). They make a collection of really cool sunglasses made out of various trees. Wood manipulation is kept to a minimum in order to showcase the medium’s natural and unique splendor. All models are accompanied by 100% UVA/UVB protection Carl Zeiss lenses imported from Italy. Polarized lenses are also available. The MSRP of the glasses is around $125.00.
Next up is WeWood (http://www.we-wood.us). WeWood produces a line of very unique wooden watches. Each watch is made from various trees including Red Wing Celtis, Blackwood, Maple and Guaiaco. Another benefit to purchasing a WeWood watch, is the company will plant a tree for every watch purchased. In just the first three months of operation, WEwood planted 5,000 trees with American Forests, and sets challenging targets for 2011 and beyond. The band is just over 8 inches (220 mm) long and can be adjusted down to 6 3/4 inches (172 mm) short by removing links. If you need an extra large band, you can purchase extra links at $5/link by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. The watches are very reasonable priced between $119-$139.
Lastly, Hidden Meaning (http://hiddenmeaningsymbol.com) makes a really unique piece of jewelry that contains all the letters of the alphabet and numbers. You can create your own meaning with each piece. A really neat concept and one that is a lot of fun to wear. The symbol was originally created by stacking each letter of the phrase ‘LOVE IS ALL U NEED’ on top of one another and then adding a peace sign to complete the design. Shortly after having this stunning and symmetrical design cast in sterling silver as a ‘Love and Peace’ pendant, Meridane Design discovered that the piece actually contained EVERY LETTER of the ALPHABET and EVERY NUMBER (as well as the entire Greek Alphabet and numerous other symbols, both ancient and new)!! The symbol is still evolving today, as different people see what they need to see.
Given that the symbol contains every letter of the alphabet, it can mean ANYTHING to ANYBODY at ANYTIME! This multilingual, unisex pendant gives people the ability to create their own personal message, HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT.
The Hidden Meaning Symbol™ is a thought provoking conversation piece which can lift anyone’s spirit, in the best or worst of times. It can also evolve with the person who is wearing it, as the beholder can S-P-E-L-L out a different message each day.
