Why are we able to offer the best possible prices?
Why don't we use international logos on your website regarding the origin and management of the raw materials?
The publication of recognised logos on the website is a marketing measure which is often only used by large global companies or groups to support their credibility. Our credibility is implicit in our business. The careful management and production of wooden products in wood producing countries is a stable and essential industry. We deal with state administrated suppliers to ensure that we are supporting the best interests of the areas concerned. Finally, the use of logos has a cost. We want to be able to offer the best possible prices to our customers by minimising administrative expenses and offering an excellent, responsible service.
Do you have a "no defects" guarantee for your articles?
Our products are all brand new, and they are packaged so that they can go through production and transit without suffering from deterioration. It is important to note that we only work with craftsmen. Our products are not factory built and the fittings are all hand made. Therefore, we are aware that products can have some slight imperfections. Imperfections will not be considered as defects but as the evidence of a craft work, which is original and unique.

Where do our products come from?
Most of our furniture comes from Java Island, Indonesia. Teak is produced in northern Java and mahogany in the centre of the island. Sheesham comes from Rajasthan, north-west India.Our catalogue of small accessories and decorative objects come from different countries but Bali island, Indonesia, in the main.
Mahogany is a pale wood, with a natural pink centre. The tradition for many centuries was to use only the pink coloured centre of the mahogany tree for furniture, but now we tend to use the whole tree. Traditionally, the mahogany would have been stained in red, or in darker tints, hiding the natural properties of this pale coloured wood, a process that we still use with some of our products. There is a naturally darker mahogany tree which grows in Africa. The wood from this tree is only now used scarcely; in boat building and for the most expensive furniture.
You are pleased with the furniture that you've received... However, after drilling the back to route cables you notice that the "mahogany" is quite pale. Is it really mahogany?
