Jarrah, a species of Eucalyptus unique to the south west region of Western Australia, is a spectacular hard wood known for its remarkable durability, extreme density, and warm, rich colors. Each item of furniture is painstakingly assembled by hand incorporating the natural imperfections which in turn become cherished possessions and heirlooms for tomorrow.
The Story More than a century ago, Jarrah wood was imported to Africa from Australia to build railways. These railways ploughed across Africa, swallowing up unlimited amounts of precious hardwoods which had been growing and maturing since ancient times. Since Jarrah wood is an immensely dense timber, it was subjected to the full rigors of a sub-tropical climate. Nature herself stamped each sleeper with its own individual character. Its distinctive blend of beauty and practicality lends it to use for both elegant furniture and innovative construction.
