Product Spotlight: Suar Wood

This week, we are spotlighting some my favorite products. I love unique pieces with a history, and our new collections from Indonesia are exactly that! Each piece is hand carved with care by a local artist in Indonesia. Rain tree wood, known as Suar wood in Indonesia, has a straight grain and coarse texture, both important properties for carving wood.  Rain trees are fast growing and easily replaceable, making these works of art an environmentally friendly choice. 

Humanity Collection: natural hand-carved pieces in beautiful and substantial rain tree wood.
 
Kallista vases are beautifully painted and textured in gorgeous colors.
Our Zuna pedestal is the perfect height to be used as a stool in your home or storefront.
Because it is both fascinating and amazing, I wanted to share a quick peek WAY behind the scenes for you. These are from the artisans in Indonesia who are creating these amazing pieces. Each piece is unique and beautiful, and I hope that you are as inspired as I am by the color and texture and hand-crafted design!
