After being featured in British GQ during summer 2017, wood watches from the Canadian brand Leafwood are catching the attention of style mavens in North America who want their fashion accessories to be both eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable. These wood watches, created from 100% recycled and reclaimed wood, look as great as they feel. In many ways, these wood watches from Canada are the perfect combination of style and environmental sustainability.
The watches come in a variety of wood styles, including natural walnut, natural black or brown sandalwood and natural beige maplewood. It’s not just the face or bezel of the watch that’s wood – it’s every single feature, including the watch band itself (although, in some models, there are options to swap out the wood watch band for an Italian leather strap).
There are a number of reasons why these watches resonate with the North American fashion crowd. One big factor, of course, is being able to choose from a variety of looks and styles that really highlight the quality and craftsmanship of the wood. The Terra Juglan Gold, for example, combines wood and gold for a particularly luxurious and stylish look. And there is now an entirely new line of women’s watches as well.
The two founders of the company, in fact, are big outdoor enthusiasts. You’re just as likely to find them mountain running or cross-country biking as working in a traditional office, and they wanted to create a 100% natural product that they could wear literally anywhere, even while biking around the side of a mountain. As a result, you could easily strap on the Juglan Nut Blue (made of walnut) as you head out on your next outdoor adventure.
And, of course, there are other advantages to wearing a nature watch – such as knowing that you’re not exposing your body to any toxins or manmade chemicals. These watches are 100% hypoallergenic, so you can have total peace of mind while wearing these watches.
In many ways, these wood watches from Canada will transport you back to an earlier, simpler era when the focus of any industry was on small artisanal craftsmen who dedicated their entire lives to creating handmade products for consumers. Original grain watches evoke that same feeling of artisanal craftsmanship.
The wood watches, while stylishly made and expertly crafted, also carry with them all the tiny imperfections of nature. That is a design feature, not a flaw. It is what makes them so special in the eyes of the people who wear them: each watch is literally 100% unique. So if you’re looking for the perfect style accessory that combines fashion with environmental sustainability, look no further than these gorgeous wood watches from Canada.
