Ever since antiquity, societies have associated wood with different intrinsic qualities. Oak, for example, has always been a symbol of strength and health. Walnut has been a symbol of clarity, focus and mental wisdom. And maple has been a symbol of creation, rebirth and wanderlust. Wood, then, can be a reflection of our character and our inner self. And that’s exactly what makes wood watches from Leafwood such a wonderfully timeless gift.
Every Leafwood watch is made from a distinctive wood that reflects certain inherent characteristics. For example, the Virago Natural Beige Maplewood watch, one of Leafwood’s watches for women, reflects the timeless characteristics of maple: creation, rebirth and wanderlust. In fact, maple has always been known as the “traveler’s wood.” It is the wood designed for people on the go, as well as for people engaged on a journey. This journey might be physical in nature – such as a desire to take long hikes in the woods on a crisp autumn day – or it might be spiritual in nature, such as a new awakening and spiritual journey.
The Juglan Nut Blue, one of Leafwood’s men’s watches, is made from 100% walnut sourced from North American forests. Walnut has always been a symbol of clarity, focus, intelligence and mental wisdom. As a result, the Juglan Nut Blue (and its slightly more sophisticated cousin, the Terra Juglan Gold) is the perfect gift to give the intelligent, wise man in your life – the type of man who enjoys coming up with big ideas and who can be counted on to think through problems logically and rationally.
Best of all, every Leafwood watch is made from 100% reclaimed and recycled wood from North American forests. Leafwood, the only maker of wood watches in Canada, works directly with organizations such as American Forests to preserve the natural environment. In fact, for every watch sold, Leafwood donates funding for a new tree to be planted. So you’re getting an extra boost of good karma from the fact that you are embracing sustainability.
The watch store nature watch from Leafwood is what happens when sophisticated fashion and style elements are combined with the latest thinking about eco-sustainability. The popularity of these wood watches reflects the fact that there is a deep-seated need within modern society to get back in touch with nature, to restore some semblance of balance with the world around us.
As a result, these wood watches from Canada are a wonderful way to re-establish our connection to nature and the natural cycle of life. There is something very magical about going for a hike in the woods and realizing that some trees have been around us for hundreds of years, if not longer, silently watching over us. They are imbued with a life force that is undeniable. And now, when you gift these wood watches from Canada to that special person in your life, you are not only giving a practical way to keep track of time, you are tapping into the timelessness of nature itself.
