Snakewood (Brosimum Guianense) Wooden Wallet
Snakewood is a very exotic, very beautiful, and very expensive hardwood that is native to the tropical rainforests of Central America. Typically it is found in Suriname where it is usually felled with axes and carried on the backs of hard working natives, over streams and through snake infested jungle areas. Each tree felled is monitored, and the government has developed a strict permit process to control harvesting. The limited supply and high demand make this one of the most expensive woods on earth. Its name is derived from the dramatic specks and markings that are characteristic of snakeskin. It is reddish brown in colour with contrasting dark brown patches and with its fine even texture and high natural lustre it all combines to give a truly spectacular finish. Snakewood, from the heartwood of the tree, is incredibly dense and heavy (competes with Lignum Vitae as the world’s heaviest wood) and is extremely difficult to work with but the effort is rewarded by the end result. It is commonly used for veneers, handles, and for high quality turned luxury items.
Every Snakewood 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 personalisation 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 with supporting paperwork which includes the unique number assigned to your wallet, further adding to its uniqueness and personal appeal.
