Material specs

Did you know that all of Uniqwa's timber pieces are sourced sustainably, being either reclaimed or plantation wood and that we do not use any rainforest timber in our designs?⁠

With a transparent chain of emergence and production, Uniqwa connects each piece back to its natural origin, so you can see where your beautiful Uniqwa pieces' journey started. Where possible, we use reclaimed, recycled, and even wood scraps (typically considered wastage) to create sustainable furniture and many of our designs are created with this in mind.⁠
