Our products do not only look good, they do good.
When people saw our products, they often asked: "What brand is this?", we told them these were our products, but we don't have a brand. Until someone said: "You should give it a name, a purpose and a chance for other people to find out who made this." We called it simply authentic.
A Touch of Living
simply authentic designs and handcrafts beautiful wooden furniture and decor for a living home. Using simple woodworking techniques, we give wood pieces a second life. Each piece of furniture is made from locally sourced wood, previously purposed as pallets, old doors or shutters.
Combining Craft and Purpose
We believe in giving young people necessary skillsets to work, access a job and earn a living. We provide the necessary framework for our trainees to learn the handicraft. They get the time they need to understand and master tasks. And we ensure the quality of the simply authentic products ourself.
Quality is important, in life, in relationships, in love. That is why we spend a lot of time putting detail into our products. Each handmade item is unique - just as you are. That is what makes our products the perfect gifts with every piece having it's own character, waiting for a person to fit to.
Sharing is Caring
We encourage the participants of our sewing and carpentry group to share their knowledge with others. Our goal is to have more facilities in the future, ran by the people we train today, to implement a system of teaching and learning from within the community.
Many Amazing Things
We are not selling one particular product. Because we teach our trainees carpentry, and sewing skills, we need to show them a variety of things, possible. But we do have a certain style, and that signature you can find throughout all our products.
