A HIDDEN PLACE
- Shona Language -
Karongwe was founded by Tino Roets in 1997. A Mathematics and Science teacher by trade, he tinkered and crafted as a spare time hobby. He always had a passion for crafting with his hands.
It is this passion that led to the creation of Karongwe Furniture two decades ago. Today we are a second generation family business owned by husband and wife team, Dalain and Elizé Roets, sharing our love for wood and crafting beautiful furniture for our clients all over the world.
There are no shortcuts when making solid wood furniture. Our pride is our craftsmanship and attention to detail in every piece that we make. Our reward is to know that each piece was crafted with the Karongwe philosophy of using premium solid hardwoods, classic joining methods and superior finishing techniques.
