We’ve been meaning to post about Wiscowood since we saw their Kickstarter campaign pop up in our inbox. They are a small Madison based company who have utilized local hacker space, Sector67, to produce bookmarks, journal covers, coasters, jewelry, and now wallets out of reclaimed wood.
Each item is unique to the wood that is used and images are burned into the wood with a laser. Their website and Facebook page have lots of great photos showing the process of how they make each item. (Images below were taken from their sites.)
Wiscowood launched their Kickstarter campaign with hopes to produce wood wallets and offer a wide range of designs and even an option for local bike shops or cafes to buy in with a set of wallets with a point of purchase display.
The campaign ends TODAY at 5pm Central time, so if you like what you see and want to support local small businesses in the age of Amazon, Wal-Mart, and the other big corporate evils…head on over to the campaign to donate and get yourself or a friend a cool, new wallet!
