Shou Sugi Ban: Charred Finish Door Hardwareclose up Designer Doorware

Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese exterior siding technique that preserves wood by charring it with fire. Sugi, Japanese red cedar, was traditionally used in the process. The wood charring process is an environmentally conscious way of preserving timber and making it fire resistant. 

Japanese design has influenced international design over the last few centuries.
