Q: What type of wood are the tables?
A: We use a mixture of solid reclaimed woods only. Woods vary depending upon what reclaimed wood is available for that production batch. Woods vary from Mango,Teak, Neem,Sheesham, Sadalwood.
Typically originally used in the construction of buildings etc & then salvaged & reclaimed for re-use in our productions. We would also use a lot of old reclaimed door panels, window frames etc.
We also natural storm felled tree slabs locally in Ireland - Spalted Beech, Sycamore, Ash, Oak & other native species, to make our own live edge tables in-house.
All the products are solid wood through and through. No MDF or plywood in any production of the furniture.
Q: How do you care for and maintain the furniture?
A: We recommend using natural wax for ongoing care. Beeswax will keep the shine & richness of the wood.
Q: Are you a 100% Sustainable ?
A: Certainly all of our Furniture is made from 100% Reclaimed Woods & all of our craft supply partners use sustainable materials & methods only.
A 90% + majority of our offering are handmade crafted pieces - using simple handcrafting tools with low energy outputs.
We are tired of Large Corporation 'Greenwashing' that seems to be so prevalent these days.
Whilst all of our range is sustainable materials & handcrafted methods, not all of our processes are. So in truth, no, currently, as yet, we are not 100% Sustainable - though we are 100% striving to be.
For us, giving people a better choice of furniture crafted from reclaimed woods & other upcycled materials, over mass produced furniture made from virgin woods, veneers, is a small, but important step in the right direction.
As in our personal lives, there are many challenges & contradictions on the journey to being a truly 100 % environmentally friendly business.
We reuse all packaging we receive for our own customer deliveries, but we currently have a 2nd hand Diesel Van for deliveries.
Quite simply, as a young, small independent Irish business, we currently don't have the financial resources to fund an Electric Van for deliveries.
We have our own allotment to grow our veg but we are not 100% Vegan...the list goes on!
Q: Do you provide bespoke design service?A: We generally focus on our own designs & productions & do not offer a full on custom design service.
However, we can provide customisations to some of our own range.
For example, if you wanted one our Dining tables in a specific length / size, we can include in our next production run. You can expect a 3-4 month lead time for custom size requests. 50% Deposit payment required.
