This modern wooden pocket mirror by Heide Martin is an unconventional take on the traditional compact mirror.

Compact mirrors used to be an item of necessity, but have since become less popular due to the emergence of smart phones that have readily available cameras. Martin sought to revamp the classic handbag essential with a wooden finish, to elicit a nostalgic intrigue from its users. Made with a sturdy solid walnut, these oval mirrors are small enough to comfortably fit in a user's hand, while providing a functional mirror that's ideal for touching up makeup while on the go.

The product is readily available with a leather sheath, ensuring one's mirror stays scratch-free as it sits at the bottom of a purse or pocket.
