Osa Craft is small woodworking company located in Tofino, BC. Designing indoor and outdoor furniture built with locally salvaged wood. Redefining the west coast style with original furniture that is crafted by hand and built to last.
The outdoor furniture is built with old growth cedar, salvaged from the beaches of clayoquot sound. We use organic hemp canvas for the slings and the hardware is stainless steel. Finished with an outdoor spar varnish that protects and highlights the beauty of this incredible wood. The indoor furniture is also built with locally salvaged cedar as well as alder and walnut from Vancouver island. The glass pulls are crafted in Tofino by renowned glass artist Sol Maya.
