Environmental/Social Statement for Sustainable Wood with Eco Friendly Finishes
To create unique works of functional art using sustainable materials and practices. We import products using only sustainable wood: Monkey Pod - Acacia - a non-native tree species brought to Thailand and planted as a wood source for the carving industry. Grows more then 1" to 2" in diameter a year in the mountainous regions of the North due to abundant water supply from run off.
Farmed Plantation Teak - Bought through the Royal Forestry Department with our certified manufacturing license - grown just for the furniture industry.
Mango Wood - Fruit trees from orchards that have past their prime fruit producing life. Trees are cleared in cycles for new growth replacement. We also find and buy old growth trees that are wild in the jungle that do not produce edible fruits.
Eucalyptus Grande - Farmed in Thailand since the 50's - started in conjunction with the Australian Government as a source for the paper and construction industry. Farmers plant between rice paddies as a wind break and short term cash product.
We only allow the use of natural oils or water based stains and wax for finishes.
To import products that only uses sustainable materials and practices minimizing our impact on the overall environment. To give back to the environment as much as we take when possible.
To provide products that are environmentally and socially responsible. Contribute to the improvement of our employees, our local community, and the communities we work with. To uphold the highest business ethics by staying true to our mission of producing with sustainable resources.
To sustain profitable growth and expand opportunities for our employees and our community.

We do not believe in trade offs as that means we are not reducing but passing the buck.
We mainly use hand methods for the majority of work although it is harder and the products are not "perfect" in the mass produced sense.
