NAUTEAK

These are a line of purses that I have developed over the past few years. They are a blend of my passions, woodworking, fashion, and love of the ocean. I wanted to combine these three passions in some way and push the limits of woods materiality and perception.  Through many failed attempts I discovered a way to make wood behave like a soft leather without cracking. I continued to play with the form through many iterations until finally creating this latest line.
