Culture

Our carpenters are from Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Bengal, Kerala and belong to traditional woodworking communities such as the suthars of Rajasthan.

Like most carpenters in India, our carpenters sit and work on the floor. This allows them to use not just their hands, but also their feet to hold the wood in place while they work on it. Each carpenter has their own set of hand tools, which they sharpen and clean everyday as a ritual.

Working on the floor allows our carpenters flexibility and dexterity in the process of making.

Machinery

While craftsmanship using hand tools is our core, our carpentry workshop is also equipped with classical woodworking machines like planers, thicknessers, routers, table saws and band saws to perform precision operations in cutting, sizing, routing, drilling, etc. All our machines are connected to dust collectors that keep the workshop relatively clean and reduce atmospheric dust.

Quality Control

We embrace the possibilities offered by hand crafting but are particular about maintaining our quality standards. For each batch of production, wood is carefully selected and cut according to our reference templates. Then the pieces are shaped, sanded and, finally, assembled. Each stage of our carpentry process is templated, every piece of our furniture subjected to continuous checks for design consistency.

Health & Safety

We are fully compliant with health and safety regulations specified in the Factories Act of India. First aid kits are available in all our workspaces and multiple fire extinguishers are present in each area. Fire safety training is conducted frequently. Carpenters who work on machines are trained and mandated to use personal safety equipment like masks, safety goggles, gloves, etc.
