Bog Oak (Quercus Robur) Wooden Wallet
Bog Oak is created by being buried in ‘peat bog’ for thousands of years. Oxygen deprivation prevents natural decay whereas iron salts and other minerals found in the peat react with the tannins to darken the wood. This wallet is 1 of 15 made from a 5300 year old tree found in Haddenham Fen. A group of 50 trees were found believed to be a primeval forest that stood at the end of the last Ice Age. During the nineteenth century bog oak was used to make unique articles including jewelry. There are dramatic colour variations which are dependent on which part of the tree the wood is taken from – darker coloured wallets are available which are made from the part of the tree that spent more time immersed in the water.
Every Bog Oak wallet is completely hand made and no mass production techniques are used. Our skilled craftsmen work and sand each wallet by hand and the results are beautiful wooden wallets that are completely unique. The option to engrave them with up to 16 characters adds further personalization as does the unique number assigned to each wallet.
Each wooden wallet includes a custom made flat spring that cleverly holds the contents in place and allows easy removal for use. With this in place your wallet will comfortably hold 9 credit cards or 18 average size and thickness business cards.
Your wallet will be presented in a high quality box that contains the shavings from the carving process from when it was manufactured. Supporting paperwork includes the unique number assigned to your wallet, further adding to its uniqueness and personal appeal.
