Our History

Rusty had originally started his importation idea in the ‘60’s bringing Afghani wool socks back to Canada for sale. He eventually expanded his wares to include the colorful Balinese kites and bright children’s clothing under the name “BaliZoo”, which one can still see in gallery today.

Over the next few years, Rusty began importing Teak Root furniture he found on the paths he was traveling in Java, Bali and Indonesia. It is important to note that since 95% of the world’s teak stores had been wiped out by the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, the severest of penalties has been imposed upon the poachers of old growth Teak in the last 40 years. The Indonesian government must certify the age of the teak roots and ensures that the wood is crafted into art pieces and furniture by native artisans prior to any exportation of this precious resource. These strict regulations lead to the prestige, as testified by past clients, of owning any teak wood piece.
