A sustainable brand
Proof is better than empty words
At Tikamoon, we've always been green at heart. Since 2008, we've been offering solid wooden furniture that's designed to last.
80% of our furniture is made of solid wood
Our furniture is created from solid wood, preserving the nobility of the tree and undergoing minimal processing, so it requires limited energy. We want to preserve the beauty of this material which remains a living thing throughout the lifetime of the piece of furniture.
Life long guarantee and repairability: CO2 captured for a long time to come
Solid wood has the advantage of being easily repaired, therefore lasting for years, not to mention its great recyclability, allowing it to give life to new objects. Every plank of wood equals CO2 captured. Our aim is to keep it captured long into the future.
Each piece of furniture has been constructed using traditional assembly methods
The traditional assembly is carried out without hardware, using woodworking techniques only. Different techniques are used to ensure maximum strength and durability. The wood will continue to live and the assembly will allow it to react while remaining equally robust.
With a view to conserving our resources
When designing and selecting our furniture, special attention is paid to the quantities of materials used. In fact, one of the main environmental impacts of a piece of furniture comes from the quantity of material used to make it. That's why we review our furniture to identify and remove unnecessary parts, such as some back panels. We also decided to reuse the offcuts, that usually go to waste, to create the interior divider and drawer panels.
Lastly, our furniture is designed to last, and is guaranteed for five years
The longevity of a piece of furniture is linked to the ability to repair it, which is the great advantage of solid wood. In most cases, sanding and applying a protective coat will leave the furniture looking as good as new. We also guarantee our furniture for five years, and we are committed to providing you with the necessary spare parts during those five years.
The Eco-rating: the tool that helps you compare and choose your furniture
Based on the six eco-criteria below, we have devised a green rating resulting in a simple scale of one to four leaves.
This table has been designed to help you choose your products with all the facts before you
We have defined six environmental criteria for measuring the sustainable development performance of our products.
This has enabled us to assess the current situation and to set ourselves targets:
|Environmental criteria||Benefits||Situation 2020||Targets 2023|
|1. Solid wood||Living material, high recyclability, energy savings||80%||95%|
|2. No composite materials||No MDF, no chipboard||94%||100%|
|3. Resource savings||Design that minimises emissions and maximises the reuse of offcuts||80%||100%|
|4. Traditional assembly||Furniture assembled by hand by our cabinet makers, ensuring product strength and longevity||98%||100%|
|5. High repairability||Longevity due to the ease of restoration of solid wood and the availability of spare parts||80%||95%|
|6. FSC® wood®||Responsible and sustainable management of forests: biodiversity, social and economic benefit||20%||50%|
