Bathroom, kitchen, hallway or bedroom, this five-hook rack is handmade from reclaimed wood and looks wonderful anywhere. The nature of the product tells a unique narrative that in turn creates an individual piece, complete with colour variations, handsaw marks, nail holes, knots and even ancient insect trails. Ten people are involved in this furniture recycling business based in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Employees receive the benefit of a Provident Fund pension scheme and ESIC (medical) insurance stipulated by the government, as well as performance-based bonuses and incentives. The company supports an organisation called TPRF (www.tprf.org - who’s mission is to address the fundamental human needs of food, water and peace sadly missing from many lives). They are also proud to provide local employment that not only helps to keep families together, but also preserve many dying crafts and traditions. The origin of the wood in each piece is unknown, maybe a door from a palace or a piece of skirting from a disused factory, but one thing is for sure. The sense of history encapsulated in this hook rack ensures not only a practical addition to your home, but a characterful one with a supplement of mystery and romance from bygone days.
