PRODUCTS AND CARE
Q: Where are your pieces made?
A: We manufacture all our pieces in our Toronto workshop to ensure they wholly meet our rigorous standards.
Q: What types of wood material do you use?
A: We construct our pieces from solid wood and MDF material of the highest quality. We source all our raw materials from local suppliers and prepare them for fabrication in our workshop.
Q: How should I care for my wooden ashtray or humidor piece?
A: When properly cared for, your humidor or ashtray will only become more distinctive with age. To extend the life of your piece, we recommend the regular usage of a wood polish or furniture wipe on all solid wood surfaces (i.e. white oak, cherry, walnut, maple, mahogany etc.). If your product is finished in a solid color (i.e. painted MDF), we recommend using a Varsal to thoroughly clean your piece once a month. For best results, we recommend that you regularly dust your products using a soft microfibre dry cloth.
Prolonged exposure to a strong light source (sun or artificial light) may alter the finishing of your product.
Q: How should I store my wood piece?
A: We advise you to store your pieces away from any strong light source (sun or artificial light) and to avoid vents that exhaust hot or cold air. Your piece will appreciate a consistent room temperature of 25°C. It is important to ensure that the room temperature does not rapidly fluctuate and that relative humidity is minimal.
Q: How should I season my cabinet humidor?
A: The seasoning process is unique with our products, an outcome of their artisan construction. We integrate solid 5/8” boards of kiln-dried Spanish cedar wood and avoid the use of low-end veneer material. We recommend the traditional sponge and distilled water method. This process should be repeated a total of 3 times to ensure your humidor is fully seasoned and ready for use.
Q: Do your cabinet humidors have a humidification system built-in?
A: Yes, all our humidors are constructed with an integrated humidification system. We go to great lengths to ensure that the wiring is hidden and unexposed from the interior.
Q: How are your cigar cases made and what types of materials do you use?
A: Each case is meticulously handcrafted using the centuries-old tools and techniques of vintage leatherworking. We use only the most luxurious of natural materials in construction, including sumptuous linen thread, beeswax, and full grain vegetable -tanned calf leather.
Q: How should I care for my cigar case?
A: To extend the life of your cigar case you may use any leather cleaning product. Apply the spray or paste on the surface area and let your application sit. After a few minutes, use a dry micro fibre cloth for clean wiping. This will remove dirt and grime and provide your cigar case with a brand new shine.
Q: Are you able to work with exotic materials and accommodate requests outside of the options listed on your website?
A: Yes. As proud craftsmen and passionate artists, we feel we do our best work when challenged with a unique request. We can incorporate metal trim work, upholstery, leather, exotic skins, and stonework to realize a truly bespoke humidor.
