I'm really into clutch bags at the moment (as impractical as they sometimes turn out to be), so these ‘wearable wood’ clutches by Tel Aviv-based textile design and development duo Tesler + Medelovitch really caught my eye.

Inspired by the properties and appearance of wood (being simultaneously delicate and flexible and strong and durable), the designers researched the potential of integrating these opposing elements to form a new product.  The result is this line of architectural wood skin purses constructed completely from wood.  The clutches are hand-made with a magnetic clasp and a soft underbelly for a comfortable grip.  All of the wood used is hand-selected, individually and meticulously crafted to a high quality standard.
