Kathkriti handicrafts began life in 2013, as a high end custom made hand-carved furniture making unit using best quality teak wood and excellent local craftsmanship.
Leftovers of the beautiful teak wood in the process of making furniture became a prime matter of concern to us and as a solution to this we derived at a much “GREENER PRODUCT” by upcycling the leftovers of the valuable teak into some very creative wall panels.
Soon we were able to reframe our entire production process by eliminating the use of energy consuming machine to locally used hand tools, developed a whole new series of stunning designs and within a short span of six months we were ready to test our market.
Response we got from Designers and Architects across the globe came to us as a surprise and that gave us a lot of strength to move further.
“Eco responsible” is our motto now.

Why Teak ?
Teak is the best and most valuable thing nature has to offer in terms of wood.
Teak is commonly known as 'Sagwan wood' or 'Saag' in Hindi and many of the other Indian languages. Due to its beautiful brown to dark golden color, teak is also a very popular furniture wood. It is highly resistant to external influences, fire, acid and water. The nature characteristic of teak is its durability in all weather conditions.
Teak has an extremely dense grained hardwood that resists rot, warping, shrinking and swelling. Its high natural oil and rubber content continually preserves the wood so it can be left outdoors for decades and makes teak highly resistant, especially against bad weather, fungi and termites.
Teak is durable even when not treated with oil or varnish. Teak remains beautiful even without painting. Known for durability and a sleek, rich appearance, when you invest in items made from teak you are joining a long line of wise consumers that stretches back centuries.
