YAKISUGI

Yakisugi is a traditional Japanese technique for the preservation of wood. Visually striking, it makes for an attractive alternative to more conventional indoor and outdoor cladding options.

THE YAKISUGI TECHNIQUE

By slightly charring the wood, and then burnishing it with wire brushes before sealing it with natural oil, the wood becomes water–proof through the carbonisation and is thus more durable.

 

Whilst resisting the elements, the wood is insect repellent and also wood fire retardant.

If you are interested in a Yakisugi finish  for your project, please contact us.
