Hi, I’m Tarryn and I run Bleached, a small Joburg based wooden furniture and décor online shop. We design and manufacture solid timber furniture and décor using reclaimed wood.
All our products are handmade, not mass-produced and unique in every way possible. A lot of love and attention goes into each item we make.
The true beauty, of course, comes from the history behind each piece of reclaimed wood – giving old wood, new life and purpose. No two pieces are ever alike. Isn’t that great?
What makes me proud to be the owner of Bleached – We manufacture 90% of our products using reclaimed and recycled wood. Yay to eco-friendly products! I also run the ins and outs of the business myself, from marketing and design, to sales and admin all the way through to conceptual drawings and correspondence with our manufacturing team. It is a plethora of jobs, all the while trying to support my little family working from home. THIS makes me proud!
I firmly believe in supporting local small business. It creates jobs and empowers people such as our carpenters. We are proudly South African and believe in trying our best to find locally sourced and made products and materials.
