Our Values

Our Values

We have always believed that a company must stand for something and speak up for what it believes in. Today we want to share our values with you.

Caring for the Environment

At CFOC, we view the earth as the place where our story begins, not as a product. Nearly all of our designs come from nature, as we constantly strive to ensure that our pieces are produced in accordance with ethical and environmental standards.

To guarantee that our actions have a positive environmental impact, we work each and every day to reduce the waste resulting from our production process to as close to zero as possible. For instance, we have switched to recyclable and reusable cotton bags for products sold in our stores.

We also try to recycle most of our production waste, which can go on to be used in other ways.

Caring for People

While the current economic system demands fast production turnarounds, at CFOC we give everyone enough time to do their work so that we can maintain our excellent quality standards and respect the crafts practiced by the people who work with us.

That is why we always try to understand the philosophy of a workshop and their working methods before partnering with them. Smiles on the craftspeople's faces are a good sign. We make sure that they are happy with their work and that they are treated with respect as people first and employees second.

Good working conditions that meet our standards include good lighting, air quality and comfortable temperatures in the workshop, as well as the time spent by our craftspeople practicing their craft.

Fair Pricing

Respecting the work performed by our craftspeople means offering fair compensation for their designs, taking into account the actual costs for the product, the materials, and the expertise, ancestral techniques and work performed by hand.

To showcase our craftspeople's expertise and create pieces you are sure to love, we have selected the finest materials, including sap from Vietnamese lacquer trees and wood from Indonesian suar and lychee trees for our wooden furniture and Yixing clay for our ceramics.

Fair pricing is also about creating lasting partnerships between producers and merchants with predictable ordering that helps producers plan for the future with confidence.

Fair pricing also means producing timeless pieces by continuing to invest in the quality and durability of our products. A CFOC piece will acquire a lovely patina over the course of its many lives!
