The term Treen literally "of a tree" is a generic name for small handmade functional household objects made of wood. Turning and carving were the key manufacturing techniques used before the advent of cheap industrialised metal ware. The type of wood was important and treen items were often made of close grained native hard woods such as beech, sycamore and box.
Founded by Lucian R. Ercolani in 1920 in England, his goal was to make furniture that was well designed and made in a good working environment by craftsmen who took pride in their work. After 100 years these values remain true today.
