Our handmade wood collection is designed by artist Kait Pelletier of Loose leaf atlas in Vancouver, Canada. Kait's background is in landscape architecture and she's a self-taught wood worker who has found a passion for design at the intimate scale of wood and object. Loose leaf atlas was founded on the idea to source high quality wood waste from backwoods logging sites to urban streets.
Arbutus wood is very rare to come by and also happens to be one of the most beautiful woods to work with. Arbutus menziesii (Pacific Madrone) is one of the most treasured and iconic trees on the West Coast and often requires a special permit to cut down.
