The Castañeda Brothers handcrafted this beautiful wood tea box at their workshop Taller Quigua. Their workshop is in the small city of Quibor, Venezuela, which is known around the country for its expertise in woodworking. Venezuela is home to a wide range of exotic woods, prized around the world for their unique characteristics. These range from the rich purple hues of Zapatero to the warm orange glow of Cartan. As a result, local crafts have developed around these materials, and Quibor is famous for its exquisite woodworking. The Castañeda Brothers take this rich heritage and use it in crafting unique and beautiful homeware pieces.
Because the Castañeda Brothers made it from hardwood, this wood tea box will be impacted by environmental humidity. As a result, it is best to keep the product away from heat sources and avoid exposing it to direct sunlight. It is also advisable to keep smaller pieces such as this in an enclosed, low humidity space during winter. This helps to preserve the natural qualities of the wood. If the wooden box needs cleaning, use a dry cloth and specialist wax. Avoid oils, silicone compounds and general cleaning creams.
Taller Quigua pieces are unique due to their artisanal nature as they are entirely made and decorated by hand. For this reason, the piece you receive at home may be dissimilar in some minor aspect from what you see in the picture. At the end of the day, these subtle differences make each one of these products an object with meaning.
