Woodcessories designs, as the name already tells, wooden accessories for Apple products. All accessories are handmade, sustainably produced und combine nature and technique in an innovative way.
The founders of the German Startup Woodcessories, Sebastian and Sebastian, are Apple lovers and passionate for plain and simple design. That was why they were highly disappointed about the boring plastic Cases and Covers they found when they looked for protection for their mobiles and laptops. Then in 2011, during a hiking tour in Colorado, they had an idea: Why not combine nature and technology and create an innovative fusion of both things they love? Why not integrate nature into everyday life? Woodcessories was born!
Woodcessories creates wooden accessories for the whole Apple family, for iPhone, iPad, MacBook, iMac and Apple Watch. All of the products are handmade, the wood is selected by hand and – most important – comes from sustainable forestry! The company only works with FSC-certified wood and companies that have the FSC-certification. Additionally, the Startup is a member of “Trees for the Future”, an organization that helps farmers in Africa to improve their life standards. For every product that Woodcessories sells, “Trees for the Future” plants a tree and supports farming in regions like Uganda and Kenia. Woodcessories stands for a unique symbiosis of nature and technology and especially for a reawakening of nature in everyday life. This „back-to-the-rootsmentality” is what you can see in all the products Woodcessories offers in its online shop: www.woodcessories.com! (Additional fun fact: The website shows the current number of trees that have been planted.)

Giving got soul.
Sustainability made easy – with soulbottles. As our starting point we chose the most essential element of all: water. And we put the soul in
drinking water. soulbottles are drinking bottles made out of glass, fairly produced in Germany, a 100% plastic free and pretty good looking, too. Sounds utopian? Not so much, because every single resource for a glassmade drinking bottle can actually be found within our country. We proudly
guarantee a sustainable and fair manufacturing process while avoiding long transits. We are aware that not everyone has clean water always accessible. Therefore we support water projects all over the world – with a 1€ donation per soulmate sold.
But together, doing good is a lot easier. Thus: get your soulbottle! We waive 5€ of your command, and you contribute to clean water access all over the world.
