What does certified “Australian made” actually mean?
- As we are certified Made in Australia (licence nbr 12303), we are legally qualified to display the Australian made logo

- Yes we do!
- We have been a family owned Australian business for many years and all our products are designed and manufactured by us, and all assembled and packaged in our Sydney based workshop
How are your products made and what raw materials do we use?
- We laser cut our wood products from processed and sustainably sourced GreenTag certified Queensland hoop pine and various other Australian timber veneers
- Some of our products are printed using a flat bed printer and ultra violet ink
- Our wood coasters are coated with high quality lacquer
- Due to the varying nature of natural wood, slight variations in colour and texture may occur
Are your products safe to send overseas or take through customs?
- Yes, all our products are made from processed wood and are sealed for safety and protection and therefore are suitable to send overseas or take through customs
- Our products are lightweight and easy to carry or post making them an ideal gift.
Are your products waterproof?
- Our wooden coasters have been coated with high quality varnish for protection and can repel a normal amount of moisture
