It is Mother Earth that gives us everything. Thanks to her, we were able to make these unique products.

Carabiners and wallets will give you a feeling of nature. They are mostly made out of wood. We coat all the wooden parts with a protective oil, so they are build to last for a long time.
The wallet can hold cards, coins and cash. It is also a safe place for storing SD cards inside of a coin box. It`s design also prevent to damage your cards.
The carabiners will make sure your keys are always firmly kept in place and can easily be accessed when needed.You will be able to avoid looking for your keys in your bulky pockets. Besides that, wooden carabiners will not damage your pants, your car varnish or doors.
The Hudwood carabiners are not for climbing but they are strong. Yes even this wooden carabiner can easily hold weights of up to 10 kg. This is more then enough for even the heaviest set of keys.
And they are super light.
Their wood structure is very unique, just like nature. Be sure that every product will have its own authentic look. We use plywood, which we made especially for these carabiners and wallet. And this is how our plywoods are built - 7 layers of different kind of woods.
Hudwood carabiners and wallet have some fun functions in their designs. Wallet can work as phone stand.
Carabiners can spin around your finger.
WALLETS – Minimalistic wallets are for sure different from other wallets both in design and functions. Weights 32,9g including coin box.
Every wallet includes:
- coin box
- one pair of black bands
- one pair of white bands
Wallet can hold:
- coin box + 3-8 cards + cash OR
- 9-13 cards + cash
CARABINERS - We have designed different types of carabiners. Most people really liked these 3 shapes.
DROP – its shape is designed in the shape of a drop. So if you put 2 DROPs together you get a heart. Weights 19g.
SURF – the shape itself combines the idea of a surf, longboard and SUP. Weights 16,9g.
SIMPLE – As A. Einstein once said: „Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.“ It is small and smooth :) Weights 15,4g.
All products are of a patent design.

A caveman already used wood everyday. He already knew it is awesome! He could not survive without wood and he used it for many things and tools.
We shape wood for your everyday use, but you will never feel like a caveman. :)
CO-FOUNDERS: 2 brothers (Dominik & Rok) who help each other out. We have experiences in mechanical engineering, marketing, supply chains, organizational sciences and many more. Nature is our thing, which is why hiking, biking, water sports comes natural to us.
Roks previous project is called Carabinsi.
THE IDEA of making our own wooden carabiner came to us during previous Kickstarter project. First we tried to make carabiners out of solid wood, but they were not strong enough, so we decided to make custom made plywood, which also gives a special look to our carabiners and wallets.The idea of adding a wooden wallet fit perfectly to creating a set for every day use.
WHY WE NEED YOU
Last year we spent quite some money and time on developing these products. Prototypes have been done with amateur equipment, which definitely wasn`t appropriate for best quality production. We also have to make a plastic mould for the coin box. Coin box can not be wooden, because it is too thin and it would break. We need your support to make these products a reality and to buy the needed tools and better equipment.

Risks and challenges
We have made many prototypes already, so we are confident about the production process. We know the company that will do the cutting, so we are confident about the quality, as well.
We are aware that there might be some challenges, in case of huge amount of orders, but we are pretty sure, that we will go about that systematically.
We will keep you updated about any issues and challenges, that will appear during our project.
Any kind of support will be most appreciated. Thank you.
Feel the nature, feel Hudwood.
