FUGA is a brand of handmade household items made from natural materials. FUGA designes and produces unique serial product and customized projects. FUGA combines production capacity, which allows to make large volumes of items in time with guaranteed quality and variability using mostly the manual manufacturing.
The main products of FUGA are wooden dishes, utensils and home decor. First collections are made from oak. All FUGA items have two surfaces, one with decorative texture and the second with smooth surface. Textures are applied manually with chainsaw. We live in the present and produce a product that meets modern realities (for example, our dishes can be washed in the dishwashing machine) and expectations of modern people.
FUGA things have two basic colors: light and dark. Wood acquires the dark color naturally with the help of metal salts dissolved in water. They react with the tannins, which wood is full of, whereby the color of wood changes. We reproduce the natural process of bog wood. It can range from warm brown to charcoal black: coloring process is controlled manually and depends on the concentration of desired substances in each individual trunk. A compound we use, not only affects the color, but kills the tree fungus as well. Bright tone is the natural color of wood covered with linseed oil. Oil forms a hard protective film, the natural alternative to laquer. Wood becomes water-repellent. The wood doesn’t crack neither shrink, and this oil coating is natural analogue of lacquer and absolutely harmless.
We work in Russia and use Russian materials, raw, and personnel. We control the production process, make it clear at all stages, from ordering raw materials to packaging and delivery of finished goods to the customer. We buy wood for our products from suppliers that have a license to harvest wood. In production, located in the suburbs of Moscow, workplaces are equipped with everything necessary to observe safety precautions for working with the tool. Most of the workers are citizens of Russia, a small percentage of citizens of other countries have a work permition in the country. We strictly follow step by step process: preparation of wood to work, cutting out pieces of the machine, applying texture manually using saws, sanding, toning products, drying and coating of linseed oil, again drying, cleaning, marking and packing. This makes it possible to control the quality of the product at all stages.
