PineSKINS as the name suggests, is the skin of a Pine tree. Within the tree cutting industry pines are valued for its cheap timber, which leaves the bark of the tree as waste. This leather-like material surprises with its softness in contrast to the thick and harsh character associated with pine trees. Fresh bark is treated with natural ingredients that preserve its softness.
PineSkins objects invite people to slow down and experience the tactility and musky smell of the forest and helps you reconnect with nature through your senses.
Just as trees vary from one to another, each item would have a slight difference in colour or appearance, which we see as an advantage rather than a vice!
