You don’t want plastic in the bathroom, and wood looks great. But can it withstand all that moisture long term, and is it sustainable? YES! If its water-resistant Wonder Wood.
Wonder Wood might sound like the secret location of your next glamping holiday – and it is definitely undiscovered and cool! – but it’s actually a fantastic modern creation that is really as ancient as it comes.
Wonder Wood is simply wood that has been baked, with the occasional addition of steam. That’s it.
No fancy chemicals, coatings, stains or varnishes. Just fire and water harnessed by humans to make one of nature’s most wonderful resources even more durable.
The wood for these soap dishes starts out life as a mid-coloured (sustainably-sourced) ash wood, and is then gently baked and steamed until it becomes a beautiful, rich mahogany colour with visible grain.
This clever process ensures that the wood:
- is very hard and stable,
- has a glass-like smoothness,
- is water resistant,
- and mould resistant.
The wood is then shaped into these generous & tactile, flat soap dishes, complete with clever drainage gaps created by stainless steel spacers.
Perfect for high traffic areas where the soap is used frequently.
Made from sustainably-sourced, heat & steam treated ash wood batons, bound together with stainless steel wire and complete with stainless steel spacers. When new a slight ‘sauna-like’ scent may be detectable. Approximate measurements: 12cm x 8.5cm x 1.5 cm thick.
The dishes should not require maintenance. If desired, the drainage channels can be gently cleaned with an old, clean toothbrush and just water (no cleaning products).
