The Japanese creation of Shou-Sugi-Ban dates back to the late 1600’s but its previous origin is unknown except for the Japan’s Buddist Horyuji Temple in Nara.
Japan’s Buddhist Horyuji Temple in Nara prefecture, whose five-story pagoda is one of the world’s oldest existant wooden structures, has been around for much longer. Initially built in A.D. 607, the pagoda caught fire and was rebuilt in 711 using Shou-Sugi-Ban. (Burn Wood) For the last 1300 years, the burn cedar has retained its initial beauty and quality.
The burned wood technique arouses interest in the many qualities it gives to wood and fascinates for its high-end appearance caused by the depth of black.
Produced at different intensities, the burned wood technique makes it possible to obtain a wide range of coloring and textures.
The properties below apply to deep char burned wood (Shou Sugi Ban). To enhance the process, the wood is finished with a natural surface product.
Today, "Shou-Sugi-Ban" or “Yakisugi” is an environmentally friendly way to preserve timber and paradoxically make it fire resistant.
Chemical preservatives, paints and retardants are therefore unnecessary.
In this ecological Process no chemicals are used and our finishing oils are natural and of superior quality.
The "Shou-Sugi-Ban" or “Yakisugi” offers different color choices.Look at our different shades and textures to see the possibilities.
The carbonization that takes place with the burnt wood solidifies the surface of the wood and saturate the pores, making it waterproof.
Termites find the taste of the wood unpleasant and can die consuming it.
