Last month, I joined Kembara Kraf Selangor trip organized by Gaya Travel Magazine to explore local hand made crafts in Selangor state. The first place we visited is D'reebu Sdn Bhd which produce wooden garden furniture. Doesn't it sound interesting?
D'reebu means nothing but combination of the owners' names.
D'reebu was established in 2002. With 12 years experience in the field, they gained popularity not only among local but also oversea. JKR, FRIM, MTIB, Balai Seni, Istana Budaya, Mardi, JPN, MBSA, PKNS and schools are among the local government agencies which bought the D'reebu products to decorate their recreation area. D'reebu's products are made from cengal, balau, keruing, meranti and etc.
sustainability of various woods for use:• Pine - 2 - 5 years
• Meranti - 3 - 5 years
• Balau - 5 - 8 years
• Cengal - more than 15 years
D'reebu focuses in garden decoration production for example pondok, wakaf, gazebo, dangau, pergola, garden table and pool. Besides, D'reebu also actively involve in designing home renovation products such as awning, porch, anjung, beranda, balcony, wooden gate and archway.
Imagine having this at the seaside? Nice right? One can sit or lie down reading your favourite book while enjoying the sea breeze!
Oh...can you believe that's a toilet? That's why I can't find it and need to ask the staff where is the toilet located XO
The wooden house behind me is a S sized chalet made with meranti wood. It costs RM33,000 and 1 week to finish it with only 3 workers.
That's the interior of the chalet. Behind the bed is a toilet. There is no kitchen installed(just like a hotel room). It's ideal for those who doing homestay business.
Next, factory visit!
Various kind of replicas for D'reebu's customers preview...
Customers can ask for custom make apart from the model available. But of course they must pay extra for it. According to the owner, they have no competition in the local market thus they can achieve RM600k revenue monthly! $$
