Materials at Janua

The types of wood used in the Janua collection are dried, stored and traded regionally through our trusty long-term partner Michael Kriwet. Certification plays a secondary role for us, as certificates are not always traceable to the source. Instead, we rely on close connections and short distances in our timber procurement and purchase as regionally as possible. We know our suppliers personally and look into the origins of our goods. Smaller, often highly sustainable companies are not always able to obtain certification. Buying timber is a matter of trust and this level of trust can only be gained over years or even generations. At least in part, we buy individual trees that had to been felled by the wind or due to construction measures. These are rarely supplied to the high-quality timber market, as it is not profitable for large producers to use these individual trees. Many of our precious monolithic trunks were recovered individually and with great effort.
