Sheesham Hardwood

Sheesham TreeWhat is sheesham?

Sheesham wood, also recognised as Indian rosewood or dalbergia sisso is the timber of a deciduous tree indigenous to the Indian Subcontinent.

Succeeding teak, it is the most important cultivated timber tree from the Punjab region, which is the largest producer of Sheesham timber in India and Pakistan. Apart from timber supply, the tree is cultivated along roadsides and canals which brings a welcome, natural shade for tea plantations. It is also often planted in southern Indian cities such as Bangalore as a street tree. With its high tolerance of cold weather and long, hot dry seasons, this species is ideal for sustainable forestry, agroforestry and deciduous reforestation.

Sheesham is kiln dried before being utilised in furniture making and this process is commonly known as seasoning. Locally to where it is grown sheesham timber is kept outside to dry up under the sun for around 6 months. Commercially sheesham is often seasoned in kilns with hot air circulation for about 7 days to 15 days for optimal seasoning.

Why is sheesham wood favourable for furniture making?

Sheesham hardwood wood features an alluring irregular grain formation which is most distinctive in appearance and can be polished to an elegant and durable finish. The wood itself is robust and durable, maintaining its original form during handling and construction. These properties make it an ideal material for cabinet making.

We work closely with our suppliers specialising in Sheesham wood furniture. Timbers are sustainably obtained via managed plantations. The wood is carefully kiln-dried and treated to protect its future stability before production starts. Our furniture is built from both the dark heartwood and the lighter-coloured sapwood of the tree. A stain is carefully applied to obtain the desired tone before hand waxing to enhance the beautiful grain. As this furniture is hand finished from an entirely natural product, variations in knots and grains will be evident making each piece, charmingly, characteristically unique.
