About us

Since 2012 Zwarthout | Shou Sugi Ban produces exclusive wood products by treating the wood with fire. Our charring masters char each wooden board in our own oven, resulting in a unique, sustainable carbon layer. The special Shou Sugi Ban charring technique we use is inspired by an age-old Japanese tradition.

“We recently replaced the potted decked timber on our farmhouse in the Beemster region with Shodoshima semi-gloss from Zwarthout l Shou Sugi Ban. With special planks 25 cm wide, it looks great on a farmhouse. A very beautiful product and great service from Zwarthout l Shou Sugi Ban!”

”We chose Yoroi for several reasons. First of all, we like the Japanese classical technique used for burning the bamboo. Due to the burning technique Shou Sugi Ban, Yoroi has a fire class B and is maintenance-free. Finally, the black charred bamboo is a regrowable material and aesthetically matches our design perfectly.”


As a gardener, it is an honour to work with such beautiful traditional products.
The delivery times are also great and you get friendly service.

We have put together two Zwarthout | Shou Sugi Ban sample boxes: one for interior design applications and one for façade cladding.

That way, you can experience the attention, care and love we pour into each piece of wood yourself. And, of course, the beauty and exclusive looks the various textures have to offer.
