Since 2012 Zwarthout | Shou Sugi Ban produces exclusive wood products by treating the wood with fire. Our charring masters char each wooden board in our own oven, resulting in a unique, sustainable carbon layer. The special Shou Sugi Ban charring technique we use is inspired by an age-old Japanese tradition.
The primal power of the fire remains visible in the colour and texture of the wood. All black charred wood species have their own unique structure and applications, both from an aesthetic and physical structure perspective.
The black charred wood made by Zwarthout | Shou Sugi Ban is very well suited for applications like sustainable façade cladding and exceptional interiors. All of our blackened wood is custom charred for you.
