Ethnicraft's story started with a single container full of decorative items from Indonesia in 1995. Antwerp entrepreneur Philippe Delaisse decided to bring back a container of furniture and interior accessories from his holiday in Indonesia to sell in his home town. Long-time friend Benoit Loos heard about it and joined forces with Philippe. Together, they started to import one container every few months. One year later, they had clients waiting at the Antwerp docks, numbered ticket in hand, to buy that one special item they coveted. The partners very quickly decided that they wanted to design and produce their own furniture and set up their first manufacturing site in Indonesia.
Today, outstanding craftsmanship is at the core of the Ethnicraft brand, and behind the simplicity of our pieces lies a constant drive for innovation. Incorporating advanced techniques to our process of creation, each new design is revised and reworked to the last detail.We create collections for every room of the house: from the furniture that defines the purpose of a space, to the objects and accessories that layer it with meaning. All of our designs are intentionally timeless.
Our collections go back to the essence of what we believe is good modern design: pieces full of character, made from quality materials that age beautifully. Using durable and sustainable products is one of their core principles. All Ethnicraft timber products is made from solid timber and 100% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. This means the timber is sourced from responsibly and carefully managed forests.
Their production facilities and workshops are spread over three different sites in Indonesia, Vietnam and Serbia.
