East of India's products are designed in-house with love and care at their studio in Folkestone. Their products are made by artisans in Indonesia, who work together as family groups and earn a living using traditional skills passed down through the generations. Their skills give East of India products a distinctive, unique quality. East of India is involved with a tree planting project in Indonesia, and each tree harvested is replaced with another. The tree used is Albizia Falcata, grown in the foothills on dry land that cannot be used for rice fields. East of India is also the owner and guardian of ‘Oak Wood’ in Kent, 22 acres designated as ancient woodland, in an area of outstanding natural beauty and site of special scientific interest.
