Who is behind? 

I'm Laura, creator and designer of Monkey Wood®. I welcome you to my shop-workshop, everything is designed and crafted by myself in Spain! 

I run my small independent business from my studio, where I create unique jewelry that represents the natural, simplicity and individual beauty of each person: We are all beautiful and unique! 

I have been always in love with art and drawing, so I studied Architecture. I specialized in Rehabilitation and  the universe of wood buildings. Thanks to that, I developed the ability to design creative spaces and unique objects with this wonderful material. Now the "buildings" that I design are much smaller: they are jewels.

There is something that makes me different: respect for nature. That is why in all my projects I pursue sustainability without neglecting the beauty and the evocation of sensations in the individual through design. 

Here you can see Lia and me at the door of our studio, where every day we work among woods designing and materializing each piece with all the love it deserves.

Why wood? 

The basic material of Monkey Wood® is natural wood. It is exceptional, light and alive! Wood has been used historically and endures today. For me it is precious to use a traditional material and work it in a contemporary way.

 I love its texture, color, smell, softness, warmth and simplicity; It also allows each piece in itself to be unique in the world. Each piece is enameled with resin from vegetable waste to provide shine and hardness, in addition to making them waterproof! This way it is not damaged by external agents such as water, the sun or the passage of time. Further,

 

  •         Is toxic free (adhesives and glues) that are present in wood compounds such as plywood, agglomerates or DM.
  •         Natural wood needs less energy to be manufactured than plywood.
  •         It comes from forests in which there is control of felling and reforestation.
  •         It is an recyclable material.

 

The manufacturing process 

The wood is cut with laser technology and each piece is sanded by hand.

When all the pieces are sanded they are enameled with BIO resin to provide hardness and make them waterproof, enhancing the natural color of the wood. This resin is used to finish surfboards. 

All paints are vegan and toxic-free. Using natural materials is positive for the environment and essential for health.

All jewelry products are obtained in Europe, according to circular economy.
