Wood Thumb

Maker - Christopher Steinrueck

Wood Thumb
Made in the USA

Maker Story

Artistry Meets Upcycling

Does your tie have a past life? Wood ties from the craftsmen at Wood Thumb in San Francisco do -- maybe as a beam holding up a barn, floorboards from an old warehouse, or siding from a dismantled sawmill.

Founders Christopher and David Steinrueck put their creativity and inspiration to good use, turning waste materials into wearable products. From a neglected old redwood beam, sitting in a salvage yard, the two brothers created their first wood neckties. Wood Thumb ties are lightweight and flexible, held together by a cord that runs through the segments of the tie and around the shirt collar. Nail holes and rust spots add character and hint at the storied history of the salvaged wood.

Part woodsman, part urban renegade, the net effect is a cool statement piece that’s definitely a head-turner. Wood ties -- they’re not just for railroads anymore.
