TATAMI from the CHARRED collection by reSAWN TIMBER co. features original cut wide plank white oak burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban and prefinished with a zero-VOC hardwax oil.
CHARRED flooring designs are available as FSC ® upon request.
Original cut is a way of cutting the log that incorporates plain sawn, rift sawn and quarter sawn grain patterns and all grades and character marks into the final product. common character marks include knots, checks, streaks and worm holes. Snow is prefinished with our hardwax oil which is natural, non-toxic and 100% VOC-free. our hardwax oil produces a durable, matte finish that respects the natural look and feel of the wood.
reSAWN’s CHARRED collection features cypress, black walnut, red oak, white oak and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban. Our award-winning CHARRED collection pays homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal. Historically very specific in their definition, “shousugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general. All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in their facility in Telford, PA.
