Wood is the base of all Ethnicraft products. Ethnicraft takes responsibilities to the environment seriously, ensuring all processes related to sourcing, production and distribution of products are sustainable. Ethnicraft takes action to maximise energy efficiency and reduce wastage.
The origin of wood
Wood is infinitely renewable. In fact, it is the world's most renewable and environmentally friendly raw material. Ethnicraft teak wood comes from two sources: from Javanese timber reclaimed from neglected buildings and from teak plantations. Ethnicraft works with the Indonesian government who insists on strict annual replanting and enforces policies restricting the size and number of trees felled each year.
No energy wastage
The residual sawdust is either used as a fuel for the drying ovens or compacted as a base for palettes. Any leftover teak scraps are recycled as finger joints for paneling.
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is a worldwide independent, non-governmental, non-profit organization that promotes the responsible management of the world's forests. This organization guarantees that products carrying the FSC label originate from forests that are managed in a way to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. All Ethnicraft collections have a label with a unique FSC number stating that the products are made from 100% FSC certified wood.
