It all starts with the sustainably-sourced Mango Wood. Stocks are kept high all year round.
The Mango wood is cut to size and then heat and chemical treated in special kilns to give the wood enough strength to last a lifetime.
The wood is checked over by hand before being passed over to the carvers ready for detailing.
The pre-cut wooden blocks are ready to hand-carve. Here, the Artisan is using a jig to draw the template ready to turn this block of wood into one of the legs.
Time for a break…
The bed frames are built and checked that it is level and square.
The headboard and footboard padding and upholstery is cut to size. (Check out our Estelle French Sofas in the background)
The headboard is fitted to the frame to check for fit.
The bed undergoes a thorough examination and testing to make sure it is perfect.
Our French beds are ready to be dissembled and safely packaged for transit to our UK warehouse.
