Why Hinoki・檜・ひのき?

Ever wondered why you feel so relaxed when walking in the forest and you stop to take a deep breath? It’s because of phytoncides, which are special compounds (or ‘essential oils’) released by trees and plants to protect against harmful organisms. They also have a multitude of benefits for human health. The fresh, earthy aroma of Japanese Cypress, or ‘hinoki’, in particular, has a wide range of proven benefits, which is why we believe it makes a perfect material choice for our range of children’s furniture. Hinoki’s benefits for children include…

  • Naturally antibacterial
  • Promoting relaxation
  • Aiding good quality sleep
  • Calming the autonomic nervous system
  • Air-purifying properties
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Decongesting the respiratory system

Our products are made from the finest, sustainably sourced solid hinoki wood.
