Maiwa East Reclaims the Past

Our furniture - where it comes from - how it's made.

Presenting a short video showing the origins of some of the Maiwa Furniture. 

In 2004 we bought all the floorboards from a factory that was being demolished in Ahmedebad. The wood is Burmese Teak - a beautiful tight-grained hardwood. It's perfect for furniture so we use it to make reproduction pieces. We also find old cabinets throughout india, spruce them up, check the hardware, and bring them back.
