A clever and unique interior design accent tool, a splash of unfinished oak or pine is always a welcome addition to my apartment. But I hadn't envisioned trees making their way into my wardrobe until I saw the latest offerings from innovative new brand BeWooden. A range of wood-detailed men's fashion accessories from bow ties and tie clips to cuff links, wallets and belts, BeWooden's products are designed in the Czech Republic but available worldwide.
The Nox Tenebra Wooden Wallet caught my eye out of the gate. A monotone color scheme with a polished black wooden face and smooth leather billfold give it the kind of sleek, minimal appearance I love. The hand stitched inner pocket easily fits any spare change or keys I don't feel like carrying, and the wood is solid without feeling heavy. But be careful whipping this wallet out when you're grabbing drinks with friends—they might think drinks are on you.
