Askmen.com + SoleWood

Askmen.com has written an editorial featuring SoleWood wallets in their, "Top 10 Things We Want This Week."  You can jump to the article here:

The good folks over at SoleWood are making some pretty impressive wood-crafted and art-deco-inspired swag. We especially dig their Standard Bi-Fold Wallet. Available in eight different colors, the top-grain leather is tanned with natural dyes for long-lasting pop and has eco-friendly pear wood paneling. Oh, and the seersucker lining is pretty sharp, too. But it’s not just wallets -- they’ve got stylish ebony and bamboo wood sunglasses, walnut and bamboo wood headphones, backpacks, skins, snapbacks, and sneakers.

Fashion Show benefiting Project Ship Foundation

SoleWood partnered with a non-profit organization called the Project Ship Foundation in a night of fashion, entitled NYC Fashion Week Meets Palm Beach. Project Ship provides a beacon of light to youth across the nation in forms of LeaderSHIP, EntrepeneurSHIP, RelationSHIP, SportsmanSHIP, and CitizenSHIP.  They used money raised in the fashion show to host a summit the following morning for nearly 1,000 teens featuring keynote speaker Eric Thomas.  We were thrilled when designer Korto Momolu, featured on Project Runway, asked us if she could have her models wear our Ebony and Bamboo Wood Aviators down the runway!!!  Shoutout to Korto as SoleWood looks forward to our next collabo!!!    

You can see clips from the fashion show in our lookbook video at www.vimeo.com/solewood/getyourwoodon

Seven months isn't too early to hold a ping pong racket is it?  Dylan seems happy to pick up a paddle.

Introducing the Solewood Fixie Bike

We wanted people to know our brand is more than just about cool swag made with wood. Its about reminding us of the fun times enjoying quality time with our friends and loved ones, doing the stuff we like to do most.  We realized a lot of the stuff we like to do like playing ping pong, corn hole, and skateboarding all involve wood. Our love of wood in its beautiful natural variations of grain, color, and texture between species combined with our passion for product design arrived at the creation of Solewood.

We felt it was important to tie in Solewood's online presence on the streets, not just in the products we've created but also in a moving object that advertises the brand.  So we created the Solewood Fixie bike. You'll definitely be seeing the Solewood fixie riding around town from time to time.  Feel free to stop us and ask questions about Solewood or go for a ride on the bike.
