Wooden Bookmark by Mark Bakula
Handmade by Mark Bakula of Wooden Images in Florence, Montana.
These bookmarks have been handcrafted using a multi-generational technique of wood lamination. They are made from an assortment of hardwoods into a herringbone pattern. Each one has its own natural color with a clear protective finish.
The ultra suede tassel is attached with a metal bead. A tassel is needed to keep it from sliding out of the book when being used. Includes a protective sleeve and information card.
Bookmark measures just under 6" long, 1 1/8" wide, and 1/16" thick.
The bookmark requires no special care except awareness of its thin composition.
Wooden Images began as a partnership of brothers John and Mark Bakula in Missoula, Montana in 1981. Today, Mark carries on their tradition of fine craftsmanship, distinctive design, and superior attention to detail.
Our wood supply is responsibly sourced, and efficiently used. Our woodworking technique (parquetry) not only creates amazing geometric designs, but we are able to have minimal waste by using the smallest of pieces.
Parquetry is a geometric mosaic of wood pieces used for decorative effect. Parquetry dates back to the mid to late 1600s and is recognizable for it's highly regular, geometric patterns. All pieces are unique, and no two will ever be exactly the same.
By combining a wide variety of woods and then carefully finishing them, each piece becomes a one-of-a-kind work of art. We make beautiful heirloom quality cribbage boards, wooden earrings, wooden hair barrettes, as well as items such as bookmarks and business card holders. Our magnetic knife racks make amazing gifts for the gourmet, a housewarming, or a wedding. We pride ourselves on meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail and feel it shows in the beauty and durability of each piece we make.
