Title

"The more there is a story behind the birthing of the product, the more special it becomes. The story for this door stopper started in a town in Rajasthan State, India. We received a request from a scrap dealer to buy their antique shoe lasts. Some had a carved seal, some had metal fittings, but each one had a distinct character. How could we utilize these beautiful shoe lasts designed for the Indian people? The thought that came to mind was "it looks like a foot holding a door open." When producing a new item, it is easier to use a new material rather than recycled material. For this door stopper, we only added a few new parts and all of a sudden these retired shoe lasts made out of teak and mango wood were reborn as door stoppers. We wanted to keep the story of this product alive by using the existing raw materials of this shoe last turned door stopper."

 

 Teak Wood Series

"Known for being sturdy and durable, this noble wood, teak, has been used to make ships, buildings, furniture and other things for a long time. The word “teak” is said to originate from the language of the Kerala state in southern India, “thekku” in the Malayalam language, and India has been known worldwide as a teak production center. However, year after year, the natural teak forest has decreased and felling and export are currently prohibited in India. This recycled wood series, mirrors, coat racks and other products, made from teak wood, was born in a city where handcrafting is popular in the province of Rajasthan in the northwest. Furniture factories there gather scrap wood from buildings that have been demolished all over India. The teak wood which had become difficult to acquire is now readily available as recycled waste material here. Although we could make the wood appear new by sanding down the surface, we dare to leave the beautiful and weathered texture as the finished product."
