We use both reclaimed and new timber sourced from verified supply chains in our furniture production.
A majority of our furniture is made using teak wood (Scientific Name: Tectona grandis). Teak has high oil content, making it moisture, acid and alkali resistant. Weather changes don’t impact its shape. It is seldom affected by insects, borers or fungi. This makes the wood fantastically durable. The wood’s warm brown colour is a vibrant neutral that fits into a variety of environments and pairs with almost any shade. The teak we use is sourced from India and Myanmar.
We use both reclaimed and new timber.
Reclaimed timber is sourced from rafters of old buildings that are demolished and are usually over a hundred years old. We carefully select beams and rafters to ensure that they are suitable for our furniture. These are then cut into planks and sized to required dimensions in our workshop.
We purchase new timber from suppliers who are reputed and whose supply chain can be verified. We ensure that the timber is ethically harvested and verify the origin certificate and documentation of every new batch we procure. New wood is air dried and seasoned in our warehouse for several months to bring down their moisture levels and make them perfect for furniture making.
We are expanding our repertoire of timber beyond teak and plan to introduce new collections with timbers like cherry and walnut.
