At the age of 26, Tor Chantara lives his life simultaneously in two worlds, practicing the fine woodworking art of marquetry that has its roots in the 16th Century, while learning techniques and ordering supplies via the Internet.
Koa Wood Covers for iPhone
Our craftsmen in Hawaii designed Koa wood covers for iPhone and Galaxy S5. Each of these covers comes with a magnetized flap to protect your mobile device. The flap folds back completely for convenience while using the phone. We use our own private stock of Koa from the Big Island. We hand-selected the Koa to be particularly dense. Less than 10% of all Koa is suitable for creating precise personal accessories like these covers.
Koa is a hardwood that grows only in Hawaii. We are proud to be a leader in reforesting Koa. We never cut down or use wood from trees that are cut down. We only use Koa wood from previously dead or fallen trees. For over 53, years, we have been the fine furniture maker of Hawaii, longer than any other company in the history of Hawaii. Today, we employ over 35 craftsmen in our Furniture Workshop in Honolulu, HI.
