Beautiful and fully sustainable reclaimed wood flooring.
The floor tiles are made of strips of reclaimed wood from redundant buildings in India, mounted onto tough canvas backing, enabling the tiles to be laid more easily and simple to remove. Four floor tiles make one square metre.
Because the tiles are made from old, seasoned wood, when laid they will not suffer swelling or shrinkage. Each tile made from recycled wood is unique and no tree or forest has been destroyed to produce it.
The flooring is made by a family firm in Jodphur, Rajasthan, in a desert area where the local economy is supported by the manufacture of wooden handicrafts as farming is difficult. The India Shop has worked with the company for more than 20 years, watching their four sons grow up and join the business. Three years’ ago, because of forest erosion, the company decided to stop working with new wood altogether and concentrate on reclaiming surplus wood available from the scores of redundant buildings in the area, recycling it into goods fit for local and western markets.
The tiles blend in with different interior styles well. An added benefit is that when you move house, if you wish, you can pick up your floor and take it with you.
