Got wood? Chakrubs unveils The Forest Line of wooden pleasure products
Posted: May 2, 2018
New from Chakrubs founder Vanessa Cuccia is The Forest Line, a collection of pleasure products crafted from wood. The Forest Line is said to explore wood as a new form of sexual-spiritual media. Each piece is carved from walnut or rock maple wood and hand-dyed by artist Cara Marie Piazza using botanical and plant essences, ensuring no two pieces are exactly alike.
“The Forest Line asks the user to strengthen the muscle of imagination with the symbolism of trees and flowers as the base,” said Cuccia of the inspiration behind the series, which includes six insertable wand pieces, a c-ring, and a stand specially made to hold Chakrubs’ products.
Released on Earth Day, Cuccia invited press and close friends to an exclusive launch dinner in New York City, complete with a flower-infused, multi-course meal for invitees, prepared by gourmet chef Elisa da Prato.
“Flowers, after all, are nature’s sex organs,” said Cuccia. “They remind us of our innate sensitivities and help us tune into our feelings and sense of touch. Trees hold a special bond with humans because we provide life force to each other; the trees emit oxygen for us to breathe and thrive off our carbon dioxide.”
The Forest Line collection is manufactured in Long Island, New York by craftsman Kevin Itwaru and coated with Nobessence’s patented Lubrosity finish, which is said to ensure that each piece is silky-smooth, odorless, non-porous, hypoallergenic, and body-safe.
Earlier this year, Cuccia announced the release of her first book, Crystal Healing & Spiritual Pleasure, which debuts on June 12th 2018, and in 2017, the Los Angeles Hammar Museum of contemporary art featured Chakrubs’ crystal products in its summer exhibition.
The Forest Line will be available for direct sale on May 15th, and Cuccia is putting out a call to potential collaborators, small retail boutiques, and galleries and specialty shops with an interest in offering one-of-a-kind pleasure objects for viewing or sale.
“By contrast to the wholesale approach that supports Chakrubs’ crystal products, The Forest Line will be offered in smaller quantities,” said Cuccia. “I’m eager to select a limited number of businesses, art galleries, and other unique promotional avenues that share the core values and mission of the Chakrubs brand.”
