For those determined to fight global warming, there is little doubt that trees are our allies. Forests help mitigate climate change by sucking out carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, locking it away in their trunks and soil, far more efficiently than any machine yet invented.
At LyZadie Design Studio, we are passionate believers in the importance of making assertive steps towards protecting the precious planet we call home. It’s why we’ve made concrete commitments to ensure our company keeps pursuing sustainability goals, and why we work with recycled, reclaimed, upcycled and sustainable materials in all our collections.
In this blog we take the opportunity to share with you a bit more about one of the sustainable material we use in our collections.
The most important of these is timber: found, reclaimed, historic, native timber. Brought back to life by magnificent local makers, the rescued river Matai and Rimu we use in our work is a love letter to what the planet provides. The team at Treology source this timber directly from the deep, lonely stretches of New Zealand’s southern riverways. As snows melt from the towering mountains above, fresh water streams down into the plains, and as it flows, it moves ancient giants with it, trees that have fallen throughout the years. You can watch their journey here and find a location marker, showing the exact place the timber was sourced from, under each product in our FLOW, TUI and BLACKTREEFERN Collections.
