A sustainable brand

Proof is better than empty words

At Tikamoon, we've always been green at heart: we've been offering solid wooden furniture that's designed to last since 2008.

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.

Guarantee of long life and repairability: CO2 captured for a long time to come

Solid wood has the advantage of being easily repaired and therefore to last for years, not to mention its great recyclability, which will allow it to give life to new objects. Every plank of wood equals CO2 captured. Our aim is to keep it sequestered 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%
