RUSTIC STYLE AND ORIGINS At the expansive Timbergirl workshop, located in the Rajasthan village of Boranada, makers handcraft pieces for the modern home, such as an entryway bench, out of galvanized iron and natural mango wood obtained from surrounding villages. Wood carvings and panels are handmade then glued together, sanded and finished by hand. On average it takes 12-18 hours for three to four makers to complete a product, each following design specifications originated by Timbergirl. The family-owned operation has been making handcrafted furniture for decades, their craft passed down from generations dating back more than 100 years. In Boranda, the rainy season typically lasts three months so careful attention has to be made to protect the product. “When it rains in Rajasthan, the wood is very hard to dry and keep away from moisture,” one maker tells us. When all is said and dry, and the orders keep streaming in, Timbergirl pays it forward by supporting local schools and employing families in the area who are given a wonderful opportunity to share their talent with the world. They are happy because they get to work alongside other family members and in their own villages. Plus the skills they bring to the table would likely go unused elsewhere, and working for Timbergirl prevents them from having to travel far and live away from their families whom they work so hard to support.
