These bookmarks have been handcrafted using a multi-generational technique of wood lamination. They are made from an assortment of hardwoods, each one being its own natural color with a clear protective finish. The bookmark requires no special care except awareness of its thin composition. The ultra suede tassel is attached with a bead. A tassel is needed to keep it from sliding out of the book when being used. Bookmark measures just under 6" long, 1 1/8" wide, and 1/16" thick.
