Timber Village has been creating signature, one of a kind furniture and woodcraft for over 30 years.

It is where magic happens, out of a deep passion for all things wood. Timber Village gives expression to the trees of the enchanting forest, through beautifully and meticulously hand-crafted products.

This rustic, soulful place nestled in the tranquil Welbedacht Valley on the outskirts of Knysna , heart of the Garden Route is were wood craftsmen whittle , carve and carpenter away in their little piece of paradise.

But don’t be fooled – the sanctuary of Timber Village belies an inner energy which manifests in the proliferation of wooden masterpieces and woodcraft, hand-crafted with the tangible passion for wood.

The woody aroma of the forest coupled with the scents of sawdust which permeates the air, is intoxicating. Anyone who has ventured in to the Knysna forest will attest to the grandeur of the giant Yellowwood , Stinkwood and Ironwood trees , ferns, lichens, mosses and fungi. Birds like the Knysna Tauraco and elusive Narina Trogen, as well as occasional sightings of Blue Duiker and Bushbuck antelope – not to mention the Elephants!

From the earthy smell of the multi-coloured carpet of the leaf strewn forest floor, to the sun-filtered halo of the tree-top canopy, natures own cathedral enfolds you as you wind your way along pathways riddles with spoor of the forest fauna.
