The Karoo Mirror is one of a kind piece. Salvaged from a very limited supply of antique Indonesian teak ploughs.
The Karoo Mirror is a one-of-a-kind piece with a history dating back to the early days of rice paddock farming in Indonesia. We exclusively salvage timber ploughs and reclaim them for their unique shape, making each Karoo mirror as much a mirror as a historic piece of art.
Each Karoo Mirror has been handcrafted using traditional craftsmanship. The mirror's frame has a long history as a water buffalo plough, serving the rice paddocks of Indonesia.
The Karoo range is individually hand-made from reclaimed timber, with a distinctly unique shape; elements such as texture, colour and pattern will vary from piece to piece. The images shown online are representative of the supplied piece. The shape of the frame may vary pending on the shape of the individual ploughs.

To create our unique Karoo mirrors, we repurpose the ploughs using traditional craftsmanship, finished with a clear lacquer topcoat.
This product is individually hand-made, with a distinctly unique shape; elements such as texture, colour and pattern will vary from piece to piece. The images shown online are representative of the supplied mirror. The shape of the Karoo Mirror's top varies between a rounded or a square top frame.
As with any natural material, existing fluids and moisture can leach over time. A natural process of teak involves oil moving to the surface of the teak.
This natural process of teak oil leaching can cause staining; this can be especially evident if the furniture pieces are experiencing exposure to weather elements, particularly rain.
We do not recommend placing this natural timber piece directly onto carpets or rugs. Moisture will generally seep through the ends of the timber. If placing it onto carpets or rugs, markings may be avoided by using a protective liner such as thick plastic.
None of the above is viewed as a fault; we embrace these changes as the natural characteristics and beauty of timber furniture.
Humidity causes mould to grow. Limited airflow and moisture create a microclimate for mould to develop. In some cases, mould will begin growing on furniture, clothing and other contents within the home.
In instances when this occurs, it is not an inherent fault of the furniture, clothing and other contents; rather, humidity or dampness in the air can supply enough moisture for mould growth on any surface. Mould can occur anywhere, and humid climates provide the optimal conditions for the fungi to grow and thrive on any surface.
Every Uniqwa piece has a story…
Our collections are mostly individually hand-made pieces. As most of our products are made from natural materials, texture, colour, and pattern may vary from piece to piece. Reclaimed timbers, naturally weathered materials and off-cuts otherwise discarded are frequently part of Uniqwa design features.
Natural splitting, cracking, and loss of natural oils may occur and form part of the characteristics and beauty of Uniqwa products. These are not viewed as imperfections or faults but as part of timber's natural life and beauty.
We believe the result of using natural materials and hand-crafted elements is a testament to the unique qualities found in materials originating from nature.
As every monitor displays different colour tones, the colour of pictures on our website and social media cannot be taken as a true colour indication of the actual products. Some product tones may appear to vary from catalogue or website images.
