Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Havok specializes in laser cut wooden jewelry, cork wallets, home décor and custom work.
Havok happens in the space between the before and after. It's the process, the metamorphosis from something raw to something refined.
At Havok, we believe there to be a strong connection between humans and wood: that it’s a part of our history and our foundation as people. Our ancestors built houses, bridges, furniture and tools out of it. Our products represent this innate connection and maintain the relationship between the two.
We use eco-friendly, natural materials whenever possible and throughout our entire business structure: the wood comes from a small farm/mill in Missouri and has been sourced from sustainable North American forests; our cork is eco-friendly/completely sustainable and comes from forests in Portugal; we print on 100% recycled paper; our other supplies come from locally-owned supply shops or American vendors.
Be it wood or cork, we allow people to experience the nature they know in new ways through our minimalist and stylish pieces. The finished work from the Havok process are distinct and edgy goods that can be worn, displayed, shared and loved.
