As all of you know, the natural resources are becoming lesser and lesser. Our company started recycling the old furniture twenty years ago which was pretty hard in those days. It took few months for the whole process to revamp a piece. Here below is the workflow.
Collect items from different houses
In the past years, we were trying our best to find old unique furniture from various parts of China especially in the mountain areas where no transport could be reached.
Subsequent to our collection, we would arrange manpower to carry the pieces from the mountain to the city and sent back to our workshop for storage.
In our workshop, we would check the furniture and classify into different group, i.e., antique pieces, old pieces and pieces needed to be reconstructed … etc. Then, our carpenters would restore the pieces according to their own characteristics.
We also attended exhibition. This not only helps to conserve the Chinese Culture, but also spread the message of recycling.
We will continue to devote ourselves in this business which let our next generation have a wonderful ‘GREEN’ World.
