OnWood

Did you know that in New Zealand, on average, each family moves home every four years? A little difficult then to keep the same bedroom door jamb. Little people grow into big people so very quickly and now you never have to leave behind those precious records. We hand pick each reclaimed length of NZ Rimu, Kauri and Pine and create beautiful height charts so that you can preserve those memories onto a stylish keepsake that you can treasure forever. Another super practical product we sell is the toy storage swing, also made from reclaimed timber. While there is only so much time in the day to bring you new designs and creations, we hope to bring you more décor products in the future.

How did your business begin?

Like many kiwi families, when we were growing up it was tradition to regularly mark our heights on the door jamb or doorway. I wanted this same tradition for our kids and it turned out that a whole lot of other families did too. While preserving family memories was the essence of the project, I soon found myself embracing the concept of preservation and sustainability. I sourced some beautiful reclaimed Rimu, Kauri and Pine and never looked back. Sustainability is incorporated into the paint used, the production processes right down to the packaging.

What gets you up in the morning?

My hungry children get me up in the morning – they’re big brekkie eaters and very much morning people!

When you're not working you are

Spending time with my girls (2 and 4 years old). We love to potter in the vege garden with Pete the rabbit, find a new playground, park and other fun places to explore. I love to create and always have a project in mind or on the go.
