The technique used to craft each piece of furniture is a tongue-and-groove technique, which results in a more meticulous carving compared to the ordinary hammer and nails technique. The signature-ruffled surface of the wood is done by hand with a plane and ruler. These pieces of art are so unique because one artisan works on one piece from commencement until completion, and then his name is etched in an obscure part of the wood, just as an artist’s signature on a canvas.
All proceeds collected from the sales of the furniture and other pieces of artwork, allow the artisan’s family to improve their lives often near their hometowns, instead of having to migrate to find work elsewhere. Proceeds go towards supporting the artisans, their families and their communities.
