Our Story

 ​

Island Timber, organically grew from immersing ourselves into the Indonesian culture while designing unique surfaces from various natural resources. Working closely with communities throughout Indonesia, we have long been enchanted by the incredible characteristics and unbridled beauty of the diverse hardwoods utilized in the dramatic architecture of Indonesian homes and buildings.

As these buildings age, and demand for modern building increase, we have committed ourselves to rescuing incredible quality old wood from being destroyed as historic buildings are torn down. These decade old panels, sourced from the premier heartwood of ancient Indonesian teak trees, exhibit an authentic weathered appearance while retaining the woods acclaimed quality.

Carefully cleaned and finished into our desired shapes, our Island Timber designs offer contemporary wall finishes that capture the rich history of Indonesian culture.
