Naoshima is our version of Shou Sugi Ban and the primary product we are proud of at Zwarthout. The Douglas wood is deeply charred in our workshop in Leersum and then we fix the carbon layer with a water-based ecological resin, so he carbon layer no longer stains and becomes somewhat tougher. Naoshima fixated has an irregular structure and a characteristic structure, which reflects beautifully in the sun. The structure of the charred wood remains visible and tangible even after fixation.
