About this project
Since the beginning when we decided to launch Treether, our goal was never just selling wallets, but to deliver a message. Nowadays, technology has carried us away to love cold electronic devices instead of embracing nature’s warmth. To slowly change that, we want more people to appreciate nature's beauty via the perspective of wood. Wood has a long connection with human history and it is the best representation of nature’s strength and vitality. Treether is a product that does just that. Combining the beauty of wood and the endurance of leather, Treether is a functional artwork to remind you that nature is worth preserving. All our woods are from certified planned logging, drifted wood, and/or recycled furniture. Hence, while we enjoy the beauty of nature, we don't destroy the forest.
When was the last time that you have admired nature’s great work? In today’s big city live, we are surrounded by concrete jungles and blindly following superficial works of men. We have forgotten to see the real beauty created for us by nature. Amidst the daily grind of city life, Treether wallet crafted from natural wood will nestle in your hand like a link to nature.
．About Wood & Nature
“Pound for pound, it’s stronger than steel.” Virtues of wood as a material is legendary. Pound for pound, it’s stronger than steel. If properly cared for, it will last indefinitely. It’s also a unique and complex material. Wood is stronger along the grain than across it. It expands and contracts more in one direction than another. Its color, weight, and grain pattern vary not only from species to species but from board to board. We chose to use trees to represent nature because of its deep connection with human history, also it is the material that can demonstrate the nature’s strength and vitality.
．About Our Leather
Wood itself is not enough to make a functional wallet, so we chose the finest vegetable tanned leather from Italy. Vegetable tanning is the oldest technique used during the make of fine leather. Not only it eliminates the environmental damage that chrome tanning has, but also enhances the durability and layers of texture.
Not only is long wallet the new sexy, but also a must have accessory for gentlemen and ladies. Large compartments and plenty of card spaces, plus easy access and never need to fold your bills.

Vegetable tanned leather completely covers and protects every edge of the wallet, so the wood fiber on the edge does not break or fall apart. The Structure of the wallet is sewn together by top quality high stretching thread that can endure years of repetitive use.
“Just under 1mm in thickness.”
Combining wood and vegetable-tanned leather, our wallets possess both the beauty of wood and the endurance of the leather. The wood sheet is just under 1mm in thickness to be flexible while durable. The natural property of wood and leather can absorb the oil from your hand to create a different look. Each Treether wallet simply becomes more and more personal after use.
Treether wallet absorbs the oil from our hands at every touch. Over time, the wood color becomes more polarized and bold. At first, the earthy texture of woods fiber can be prominent, but after some time of use, the texture becomes soft and smooth. This phenomenon creates a personalized and unique look for each user.
Treether looks good on whatever your style is.
To show you the beauty of wood, we have diligently selected eight different types. Whatever your style is, we believe you will find one that you truly love.
"Comes from “planned logging” or recycled furnitures."
Wood’s value depends on its unique texture and grain, so rare wood is not easy to acquire but only happens in luck. Our woods comes from “planned logging” or recycled furnitures, so even if you want to purchase, it depends on the availability. Because so, it made these wood more special and unique.
Every time a Treether wallet is delivered to the hands of its owners, they are often surprised by its high quality and fine touch. It's something that a picture is difficult to convey. Believe us, each wood’s texture and grain is unique. You won’t find anything alike out there.

Parsec Design Studio was established in 2014. We believe that natural materials hold great integrity and depth as they are born and refined of the earth. Last year, the inaugural range of Treether products achieved an astounding 1870% of support in Taiwan's crowd-funding arena. This enabled us to deliver one thousand Treether wallets to our loyal supporters. Since then, we have been actively taking on feedback and plan to do more research and development for our existing and future products. To enable even more people to enjoy our crafted natural wallets, a new range of Treether items are currently in the making.
Risks and challenges
I know that timely fulfillment of rewards is extremely important to backers. I have already identified time and resources needed to complete this project if it exceeds my $8,000 goal . Relationships have already been cultivated with manufacturers who I worked with in my first campaign. Fulfillment requires a team of people. The PARSEC team is organized and are just as committed to rewarding your pledges as I am.
I really hope to get your rewards to you before the time I stated, but I am allowing some wiggle room just in case I run into problems.
All I need now is your support. Please let me reward your backing. I am ready to send the Treether wallets around the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
