After years of feeling frustrated that they couldn’t find quite the “right” look, Liz and her team got the drawing board out and designed their own outdoor collection. This elegant, but robust range of teak garden furniture was brought to production in a small sustainable factory in Jepara (Indonesia)
Following the ecological footprint, when considering manufacturers, ensures that Rosara is a vanguard retailer on trend with today's’ ethical principles.

We all know that living forests are vital to mitigating climate change because they absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, nowadays the small factories exporting to the EU are signed up and have the SVLK accreditation required by Indonesian law.
Freddie, our furniture designer has been visiting this creative group of furniture makers since 2016 and has forged a strong friendship with the family-run company he works within Jepara, Central Java.
Responsibility for logistics, warehousing and general admin is taken care of by 3 brothers whilst packaging and storage is run by a team of women, old and young working side by side. There is regular communication with the team in Jepara, discussing designs and checking the authenticity of the SVLK endorsement. This means customers can be certain that the Bruern and Henley ranges, part of the Rosara collection of outdoor furniture, are manufactured from legally harvested wood... sit back and relax!
