Description

Sibirjak is a contemporary lounge chair made from birch bark. This fascinating natural material is not only flexible, soft, water­repellent, and antibacterial, but also breathable, durable, and strong. Despite these unique characteristics, as a material for everyday objects, it is gradually being forgotten. In response, Sibirjak answers the question of how to revive an ancient tradition while reinterpreting a conventional handicraft with contemporary techniques.

The chair and ottoman combination emphasizes the material’s aesthetics, combining traditional skills with modern processing. The horizontal alignment of the bark underlines the leather­like properties of the material, is welcoming, and offers a wide comfortable seat. The textile details and reduced geometric frame form a strong contrast to the natural birch bark.

The use of birch bark in Sibirjak is in strong contrast to the material’s usual folkloric associations, while at the same time reinvigorating traditional handicraft by demonstrating new design possibilities in a contemporary context.

FAQ

No - the bark is harvested from the tree once a year. Here only the top layer is removed
which grows back again, so the tree is not damaged.

We get the bark from the Siberian taiga, where countless birch trees grow. The birch
bark is traditionally harvested by the craftsmen in Tomsk and the products are
handcrafted in our two production facilities there and in Ivanowo.

There are several reasons why the products are made in Russia. On the one hand, because the bark of the birch trees there is especially suitable. It is much thicker and more robust than that of our native birch species. Above all, however, the use of birch bark in Siberia has a tradition that goes back thousands of years. We want to use the old knowledge to save this craft from extinction and to create jobs locally to give people new perspectives.

No, outgrowths or other irregularities on the bark have no effect on its special properties. Since each product is made of 100% natural material, none of them are the same - each one is unique!

Yes. The surface of the bark is very dense and therefore water and dirt repellent. For example, our storage containers can be cleaned under running, lukewarm water. Helpful care instructions are enclosed with every product.

No. Under normal conditions (room temperature), the bark remains smooth and flexible for an eternity. At best, products made from birch bark should not be used / stored on a heater or in freezing temperatures. No other maintenance is necessary.

We sell our products in many shops all over Germany and other countries. A list can be found in the footer of the website.

We make sure that all parts that come into contact with food are free of harmful substances. E.g. the lids of our Tuesa storage containers are treated with water-based wood stain and sealed with beeswax only. For the production of our other high-quality components such as metal frames, we carefully select artisan companies in Germany and Austria.

The fact that the products do not have the typical white colour is because we remove the top layers of the bark by hand in order to make use of the unique properties of the velvety soft inner layers.

The bark of the birch does not show any allergens and therefore does not pose any risks for people with allergies to birch pollen.
