The Eco-friendly Wooden Bath

A factory in Seattle, USA is making wooden baths. Nathie Katzoff from NK Woodworking & Design is manufacturing wooden baths that are functional and sustainable plus look great.

Wood is not petroleum-based, casted or a refined product that involves massive amounts of energy to create. Wood is a natural material and if it is harvested and treated appropriately, it will last to forever.

NK Woodworking & Design uses FSC-certified hardwoods. The wood is recycled or reclaimed. The finished tubs are the product of a complex composite system in order to make the bathtubs functional, water resistant and able to withstand daily wear-and-tear.

Nathie Katzoff gained valuable experience doing boat restoration and reconstruction on classical wooden boats before going to a design-focused furniture business. The popularity of the bathtubs, combining his existing art skills and his love of boat building, gained momentum.
