SKU# teak-lotus-panel

Details

Using recycled rough-hewn teak planks from old dwellings and community buildings, hill tribe craftsmen in Thailand devote endless hours to hand-carve, sand, and wax this intricate lotus flower motif. To Thais, the lotus symbolizes prosperity and fertility. Our panels are crafted from reclaimed teak so prized that Thai families make them the centerpiece of a room. Each panel is cut into 12" sections that fit together for ease of shipping and mounting, and comes with recessed hanging hardware. These exquisitely detailed carvings help pay for new community buildings for each village.

Eco Info
Lotus panels are made from reclaimed teak panels that were cut over 50 years ago. The wood is not machined down flat or squared up. The carvers rough cut slats that are approximately the same size and then lay them side by side. As such they are not perfect squares.

The pattern is transferred by hand, then they drill holes and thread "finger saws" through the openings of the pattern. The saw marks and some misplaced holes are visible at times. The artisans then carve by hand to create the 3D effect. The piece is then sanded, a non-chemical finish is applied and two embedded hangers are attached to the back of each panel.It is an imperfect art and each panel is unique.

To hang start with the inside panels and work your way outwards. The pattern will not line up perfectly nor will it be perfectly square on the outside edge.
