It all began as a simple experiment with nature.
Founded in 2009, Shwood was born from the limb of a Madrone tree, a rusty pair of cabinet hinges, and lenses from the corner store. The goal was simple. Create a product that encompasses the individuality and uniqueness that can only be found in natural surroundings.
Equipped with nothing more than rudimentary hand tools and a desire to be different, the manufacturing process was completely engineered from the ground up. Constant experimentation with tools, materials, and design and has resulted in an array of one-of-kind techniques that continues to evolve daily.
