If you have a passion for precious, rare natural products and the finest men’s accessories, these cufflinks are the right choice, since they are a handmade piece, primarily combining precious metals such as sterling silver and rhodium with morta wood, also known as Bogwood.

Combining elegance, creativity, craft skills and the use of morta wood, with its natural imperfections, makes it a unique and one of a kind piece. Morta wood, being the main material used in the cufflinks is an extremely delicate material extracted from the trunks of trees that have lain in bogs, and bog-like conditions such as lakes, river bottoms, bog pits and swamps for very long periods up to centuries and even millennia.

Due to the fact that the wood used in this piece is in need of regular care, it comes in a closed wood box with a special cloth and wax especially aimed for wood care. Very singular ecological and unique item.

CARING

All our pieces, due to their delicate nature require some caring from time to time. For this reason, we offer a special pack including a soft cloth and wax especially aimed for wood care. A silver cleaner can also be used to clean sterling silver pieces, in this case, avoid contact with leather or wood parts.

 

MORTA, which is the main material we use, is a millennial and extremely delicate material created from the trunks of trees that have lain in bogs, and bog-like conditions such as lakes, river bottoms and swamps, for centuries and even millennia. Deprived of oxygen, the wood undergoes the process of fossilization and morta formation. Due to its century’s long exposal to water currents that bind the minerals and iron in the water with tannins in the wood, naturally staining the wood in the process, in a centuries-long process, often termed "maturation," turns the wood from golden-brown to completely black, while increasing its hardness to such a level that it can only be carved with the use of specialty cutting tools, no two trunks can be found of the same colour.
