Decisions at all stages in the design process have been considered with the question: How does the furniture we create impact the planet and the people who own our furniture?
Designer Joshua McGrath aims to create mere interruptions in the overall lifecycle of the materials we use. Creating furniture to be enjoyed for years that expresses calmness and honesty from materials that are grown responsibly and sustainably.
We carefully researched and sourced natural materials which align with the sustainable and environmental ethics of Ōragi.
Ōragi conducts a full lifecycle assessment of each material to verify its performance over time and its ability to be adopted into our LifeCycle circular mindset.
Beauty and Benefits of Bamboo
Carbon neutral, FSC certified, harvested within 3-5 years and grown without the use of pesticides and fertiliser.
Bamboo is a strong yet lightweight and highly sustainable alternative to hardwoods.
The selection of bamboo as the main material throughout the collections was a very conscious decision.
The bamboo grass, formed into boards, has sustainable attributes not achievable in wood and it was a long-term decision to celebrate this material which has a gorgeous tone and warmth and linear property to its grain that pairs excellently within a modern interior.
Cushions: Comfort at their core
Our cushions were developed to be the most comfortable natural cushions on the market.
We generously combine natural materials to give a seating experience that supports you whilst relaxing and springs back; removing the need for constant plumping associated with similar seat cushions.
Our cushions also use no glue to join the layers meaning each material can be individually replaced or recycled. Layers are instead held within a handmade cotton inner cover.
Made to Last
All our furniture is handmade in our workshop in Burslem, Stoke on Trent. Combining traditional and modern woodworking techniques to craft furniture that is made to last.
