Driftwood is a gift of Nature. For thousands of years wood pieces have fallen into lakes and rivers, exposing the wood to natural carving as it winds it way down the mountains to meet our oceans. For this new collection, we have tried very hard not to alter the shapes of wood that are collected and turned into docks. We truly believe that these pieces belong as they are found. We do hand clean every piece and perform a 3 cycle soak and rinse in a Sodium Chloride solution to kill microbes, rinse, and lighten the pieces. This dock comes with one installed lightning USB cable that will sync and charge your iPhone 5. This driftwood dock will accommodate a thin to medium sized case on your phone.Please note that every piece of driftwood is unique and different from the rest. Rest assured your dock will be as unique as the person using it.

Dock Artisan - Joel Young
We at Purible are obsessed with compelling design. Sometimes however, it's simply hard to top the raw visuals that nature itself provides. We're guessing that the folks at Dock Artisan, a team of skilled artisans and designers based in the Sierra Nevada Region of northern California, would agree. Founded by Joel and Iris Young in 2011, Dock Artisan has been handcrafting pretty stunning iPhone and iPad docks, speakers, and cases from fallen and standing-dead trees found and reclaimed in the local forest. Whether made from Oak, Redwood, or driftwood, each Dock Artisan piece is completely one-of-a kind and showcases the beauty of nature enhanced, just a bit, by human contact.
Process & Materials
Every year massive storms rip through the California Sierra Nevada Mountains, toppling trees and breaking off limbs. Dock Artisan harvests nearly all of their wood from fallen, re-claimed, re-purposed, and standing dead trees, with some products also made from found driftwood or sustainable bamboo. Each product is then individually designed and masterfully handcrafted. "We give this wood a new life with purpose, making every single dock an original, one of a kind treasure." - Dock Artisan
