The lid of the bottle is made in a Swiss turnery using locally sourced beech. Each lid is crafted with utmost care and has its own unique character, thanks to the individual grain of the wood.
The door to the turnery warehouse opens slowly, filling the air with the fragrance of wood. This is where the precious timber from the surrounding area is stored, waiting to be crafted into finished products. Local foresters and farmers provide the turnery with many different varieties of wood: apple, oak, plum – and of course beech, which is used to make the lid for the FLOW drinking bottle.
The first stage of work in the workshop is to saw the long beech planks into small cubes. This is precision work: if the plank is crooked and uneven, that can’t be rectified later. The experienced wood turner measures the thickness and gives a satisfied nod. The saw buzzes, and little wooden cubes tumble down into a container. The lids are only rounded into a circular shape at the very end, since the square elements are easier to fix in place for the next stages of the process. After the saw comes the drill; each piece is hand-drilled to create the opening for the thread and seal.
