Craft made furniture and home goods made from reclaimed and recycled tropical hardwood. (Yup, insert Portlandia joke here.)

The short of it - Alchemy Design Co makes furniture and home goods using reclaimed hardwood and other sustainable materials in Cambodia. Now we want to get our product into your hands.

Starting out as a simple passion project, Alchemy Design Co has transformed into something bigger than we expected and we couldn’t be more excited. Over the last 18 months we've grown from our humble beginnings as a hobby business in the front yard of our family’s house to a full-fledged design and furniture production company. With a unique designs and a commitment to sustainable materials, we’ve developed a great niche business in Cambodia. We have our own line of furniture and fabricate custom designs for both residential and commercial spaces (restaurants, bars, hotels, etc.). By word of mouth and creating great products, we are feeling the love.  

 

We take pride in the label “made in Cambodia”. We are not a social enterprise, instead we aim to be a good business that does business well. Our thought is that making good products does not have to come at the expense of people or the planet – thus our three primary values: People Matter, Planet Matters, Product Matters. We want to do right by our employees by paying above average wages, providing health benefits, including staff family in our community, and of course providing a positive and healthy work environment. In turn, we have a talented and committed group of staff. We want to be a part of the solution to the deforestation occurring throughout the region so we use reclaimed, recycled, and salvaged wood for our products. The benefit is that we have access to a great stock of beautiful tropical hardwood that comes with a great story. Our products are all pride-fully crafted by artisans and wood workers who care about the end result. We hope our products will last decades in our customers’ homes, rather than the landfill.  

 

 

Growing to the next level. With a solid reputation in Cambodia and the chance to hone our production process, we are ready to bring our products to the international market. We are selling our small wares through Kickstarter in order to help fund a shipping container full of furniture and other products to North America. Each dollar you contribute helps pay for the shipping and production cost of getting our goods out of Cambodia and into the west.

Now the good stuff. Check our our rewards and join us in this Kickstarter campaign
