All our Reddie products are brought to life in our workshop located in Central Java, Indonesia - where great craftsmanship and quality material co-exist in one place. When coming up with the concept for REDDIE (handmade, timeless & customisable designs) we approached many factories, but due to the sheer difficulties of customising each product, there were zero factories that were willing to get on board. So we had to think differently and we decided to build a team of our own in Central Java, Indonesia - also where both Caroline and Andrew (founders) are partly from.
Our designs are modern but our process takes from the past. We believe in slowing the process down and learning from original craftsmanship. Our production is trained in traditional Danish woodworking, so we combine a modern aesthetic with traditional craftsmanship and detail. Our team love to be challenged daily and take pride in executing beautiful work.
At Reddie, quality and transparency are both very important to us. The hand-made quality combined with the high-quality materials goes hand in hand with what we uphold as a brand. Every product is unique due to its hand made nature, marked with its own natural markings and imperfections which we embrace the most. Each piece is especially unique, just like you and me.
With mindfulness at the heart of our production process, we have used sustainably sourced hardwoods. The teak wood we use is from a certified FSC plantation forests in the region. We buy the entire log, instead of pre-cut planks from a supplier - which means that we use every part of the tree. Our offcuts are used for our accessories such as chopping boards and bowls, and our marble offcuts are used by the local community to build footpaths and houses. Whenever we are in the factory we are constantly thinking of products to design that reuses waste.
At Reddie we make to order and do not mass produce. Mass production is not only wasteful due to its processes, but also due to brands having to flash sale in order to rid their products, which ultimately makes customers buy a product they may not 100% need and often throw out. We make pieces that are timeless and that will last you a long, long time - which means you throw out less and treasure more, ultimately helping our environment at its most vulnerable time.
We at Reddie aspire to bring cultural change to the industry which we are working towards on a global scale. When you buy with us, you are not only purchasing with a purpose, but are helping local communities and talented craftsman.
