The art of Fossil Stone Furniture is a traditional handcrafted skill unique to Cebu and Mactan Islands in the Philippines.
It is constructed using a type of limestone that has been agatized with fossils that were once left on the ocean floor. Through this natural process, seashells and coral- like figures create the organic characteristics of the stone.
This fine creation is one of a kind and only found in one place on earth. When the stones are quarried, they are hand carried almost 2km to a sorting site, they are then hand carved into two finishes- rough and smooth cut tiles.
Piece by piece these fossil stone tiles are meticulously adjoined edge to edge forming into a continuous surface. Being a soft and porous material, the stone is applied to a hollow timber carcass to form the design.
The overall process of Fossil Stone furniture requires a high degree of skill and craftsmanship.We are proud to exclusively offer this craft through our Estrella Collection, which ethically supports local trade whilst revisiting some of our favourite vintage designs by partnering with the original makers of these unique and sculptural pieces.
