Ethnicraft Timbers

Ethnicraft Teak

  • The solid teak in the Ethnicraft collection is untreated and the finish comes from the natural oils of the Teak wood. It does not feature a seal.
  • The oiled surface should be regularly cleaned using a mild soap and water. Any spill should be removed from the surface immediately, but there is no guarantee against stains as this is a raw timber.

Ethnicraft Oak

  • Most of the Ethnicraft Oak furniture is finished with a pigmented hard wax oil. This protective finish forms a natural coating, repelling most common substances and fluids, but is no foolproof guarantee against stains.
  • For regular dusting, use a dry, non-fluffy cloth.
  • For cleaning, use a damp sponge or cloth (not too wet) with a mild solution of water and natural soap (no detergent)
  • For refreshing the surface of the furniture when the wood starts to feel dry or for removing stains, Ethnicraft recommends Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner (3029).
  • Through time and depending on wear, the original hard wax coating on the furniture may need to be renewed. Make sure the surface is clean and dry, then use extra fine sand paper (minimum 320 grit) and work in the direction of the wood grain, then apply a hard-wax oil – Ethnicraft recommends the Osmo Hard Wax Oil Natural (3041). Please note, this oil protection is no guarantee against stains.

Ethnicraft Walnut

  • All Ethnicraft Walnut furniture is first tinted with coloured oil and then finished with natural oil. This finish forms a natural coating, protecting it against most substances and fluids, but is no complete guarantee against stains.
  • For regular dusting, use a dry, non-fluffy cloth.
  • For cleaning, use a damp sponge or cloth (not too wet) with a mild solution of water and natural soap (no detergent)
  • For refreshing the surface of the furniture when the wood starts to feel dry or for removing stains, Ethnicraft recommends Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner (3029).
