KATE WOOD ORIGINALS, named for founder Pim Gietelink’s daughter, was created out of a desire to build a legacy he could pass on to future generations. Born in Amsterdam in 2012 first with wooden sunglasses and watches, Kate Wood Originals is a socially conscious business that believes there is still great value in carefully handcrafted goods made from renewable resources.
WE BUILD BIKES WITH BAMBOO
The Kate Wood Originals Fixie has a strong and lightweight bamboo frame that will make you wonder why all bicycles are not made from bamboo. The KW Fixie is so smooth and easy to ride that coffee runs will always be worry-free and fun. The hemp fiber joints the all-bamboo look and to ensure you never go back to a metal relic, we added a leather saddle, wood, or leather grip so that every cycle is the perfect ride.
The latest collection, SUMMER 22’, features Acetate and Wood sunglasses! This unique piece of this collection is one-of-a-kind, and we searched high and low to ensure it was worth the wait.
ACETATE & WOOD COLLECTION
This new collection features environmentally conscious frames. Made from the premium Italian Mazzucchelli cotton-based acetate & sustainably sourced wood, Kate Wood puts the craft into handcrafted. A completely renewable, biodegradable, and hypoallergenic alternative to petroleum-based plastics.
