Tel Aviv-based textile design and development duo Tesler + Medelovitch have introduced “wearable wood,” a textile they conceived two years ago and have used to create a line of luxurious clutches. Inspired by the texture, properties, and appearance of wood as a simultaneously delicate, flexible while also strong, durable material, they researched the potential of integrating these opposing elements to form new product identities. The result is a line of architectural wood skin purses constructed from 100% wood. While the geometric surface design provides necessary flexibility, the wood texture is soft to the touch, achieving a balance between refinement and durability. Featuring a magnetic clasp and a soft underbelly for a comfortable grip, all wood used in their designs is hand-selected, individually and meticulously crafted to a high quality standard.

This process is painstakingly done by hand, making each piece a true work of art. They come in two sizes: the small is 11.8 inches wide and 5.5 inches tall ($580 US) and the extra large is 15.7 inches wide and 9 inches tall ($680 US). Both sizes come in 6 color ways.
