The Ethnic Steez workshop is located in the center of Moscow, a 10-minute walk from the Komsomolskaya metro station, close to the Garden Ring road and the Third Ring road. This is the place where we, inspired by the beauty of ethnic patterns,create contemporary things of natural wood.
All our products are made of 100% solid wood. Usually, it’s pine or oak. And we add quite a bit of metal: hooks, staples and handles. Only natural materials without any plastic or dubious compounds. Firstly, they are natural, safe and healthy. Secondly, it is aesthetically beautiful. And thirdly, seeing and touching something real, warm and live provides completely different impressions. Yes, MDF, chipboard and plastic are cheaper and easier to handle and process. Still, we strive for the best results and never look for an easy way. It’s also important for us that our customers have at least a small portion of nature, a live forest, at home. ⠀
We do not carve our patterns manually; trying to keep abreast of the time, we mill them - carefully and elegantly. To complete the other steps (grinding, assembly, painting), we use our own hands. So, this is really manual, piece work carried out in a small workshop in the center of Moscow.
Most products presented in our catalog are made to order, so be prepared to wait a while. Notice also that products may look somewhat different from those in pictures, as this is piecework production, where a substantial part of operations is performed manually.
