Windows are the eyes to your home’s soul. When dressed appropriately, they allow just the right amount of the sun’s light to enter a space and transform the energy and appearance of every room in your home. But we’re a picky bunch, and not just any window covering or shutter will do.
We’re fond of S:CRAFT’s ethically sourced hardwood shutters because they not only look stylish, classy, and lovely, but because they’re sustainably harvested and innovative; they conserve a substantial amount energy in your home which means you’ll save money in the long run.
These shutters are made from sustainably harvested Paulownia, one of the fastest growing tree species (it can grow up to 20 feet in one year!).
We’re loving the stained range of Fiji plantation shutters which are made from Paulownia, cultivated from sustainable plantations and harvested within 7-10 years (making it one of the world’s fastest growing tree species). Here’s a fun fact: It actually re-grows from the original root ball and is harvested rather than re-planted. Aren’t trees amazing?
Paulownia is a very light, fine-grained and warp-resistant wood making it an ideal shutter that will dress your windows beautifully and last you for years to come. Due to Paulownia’s low thermal conductivity, these energy efficient shutters will keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
