Explore Timber Village in Knysna, where all the magic happens. We opened our timber village in 1985 in the centre of South Africa’s world-famous Garden Route, taking our passion and love for wood creation a step further and began manufacturing custom handmade furniture out of a variety indigenous natural wood from the Knysna forests.
Today we have grown and taken on a team of skilled wood craftsmen, all eager to produce unique custom made furniture with personality. Our customers can either commission an existing design, tailored to suit their needs, or we can design and develop an entirely unique idea for you. Our attention to detail is brought through in the design of our products, you can always see the true identity of the wood in every item hand crafted, showing respect for the wood throughout the process.
Our website will take you on a journey of masterpieces made in our little workshop in the core of Knysna. Indigenous forests such as the Knysna forest, are a wonderland of soft, tranquil beauty with an abundance of biodiversity unlike their man-made counterparts, single-species fast-growing tree plantations like pine and gums that do at least serve the purpose of taking the pressure off our slower growing indigenous woods. We have a selection of items we have created, from jewellery boxes, beds, tables, bars, bespoke furniture, kitchens, and staircases, and much more.
Every piece of furniture made from our team brings an overall satisfaction to our clients, as we do our best to provide the highest quality through the end product, according to the specification of your design as well as the beauty of the wood. You can almost feel the love and care that is put into the design and products created at Timber Village. Our craftsmen put great care into each piece of wood, every piece tells a story of its journey from forest to product. We like to believe it’s not just about selling furniture, but rather about creating designs and products with a purpose.
