The term petrified wood comes from latin; ‘petro’ means rock or stone. Combined with the word ‘wood,’ the term literally means ‘rock stone.’ Buried several meters underground, the wood turns into stone as a result of fossilization process which takes hundreds and sometimes millions of years - some petrified wood is 20-65 million years old.
As the fossilization process takes place inside the tree trunk, artisans uncovering petrified wood never really know what the final material will look like. Not until it's uprooted and cut. And once its sculpted, no two pieces and patterns are the same. Colors range from beiges to pinks to blues. And those pieces that have more black in them are a result of volcanic ash coming in contact with the fossilization process.
As diverse as they are unique and versatile, we couldn’t pass these stunners by while in Indonesia. Our petrified wood collection is curated from Java, where master artisans select and sculpt the most beautiful rock wood accents.

Because these items are made with vintage textiles and may include leather accenting or hardware, we recommend that they are professionally dry cleaned when cleaning is required.
JASPE & JASPE BASURA
We recommend that cushions, rugs, throws and bed blankets from these collections are dry cleaned. This will ensure that colors retain their luster and fabric its shape.
TOTO & CHILE VERDE
Gently wash cushions, bed blankets and throws from these collections by hand, in cool water. Wrap the tassels in rubber bands before washing, use mild soap and line dry to maintain the piece's original shape.
Clean with a natural or mild cleanser (avoid harsh chemicals) and a soft cloth.
Vacuum regularly. Rotate every few months to even out wear, especially if the rug is located in a high traffic area. In case of a liquid spill, blot the spot using a white cloth to draw up the liquid; never rub a wet stain to prevent colors from bleeding. If further spot cleaning is required, entrust your rug to a professional dry cleaning service.
