Lotus Arts de Vivre has been rooted in Asia and is highly inspired by nature, culture and mythology of the region, making use of noted rare and auspicious naturally occurring materials to create exclusive and unique art, working with some of the world's best designers and craftsmen.

The teak root has been sourced from the finest teak plantations in Java, Indonesia, which is known to have the ideal conditions for high grade teak quality. Teak is the common name for the tropical hardwood tree species Tectona grandis and its wood products, native to South and Southeast Asia. It is known for its incredible durability and water resistance. Lotus Arts de Vivre uses various free-formations of the teak branches, teak root or driftwood, to further hand-carve and create its designs, giving wood a second life.
