Alain van Havre works fulltime for Ethnicraft as in-house designer. The complexity of things has always intrigued him, which led him to study product development at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
To him, all design embodies the same duality: the aim is to create a timeless product, yet with a hint to the specific moment in which it is made. We are always influenced by the past; however, it is up to us to find the right balance between past and present.
Alain, who is a friend of Philippe Delaisse and Benoit Loos, started working at Ethnicraft in 1999 - first in Operations in Ethnicraft Azur in Aixen- Provence and since 6 years in product development. It was a perfect match, especially since
he considers wood as a continuously evolving material, where boundaries are pushed further every day, creating endlessly new challenges.
Ethnicraft know a thing or two about beautiful furniture in wood. They have been making Oak, Teak and Walnut furniture for over 25 years. For 2021 the collection expands into the outside. Teak being the natural choice for durable high-end exterior furniture. Of course, it's equally at home in the interior.

Ethnicraft's outdoor collection is designed to adapt well to a range of environmental conditions, whether that be on an urban terrace or beachfront patio; warm and tropical or cool and mountainous. As the furniture adapts to its environment, it is normal for some cracking and movement to occur.
The beauty of teak is that, even when left in its natural state, outdoors and in any season, it is basically maintenance- free. Our teak range comes without any finish or protective treatment. The wood is merely polished, allowing the natural oils to rise to the surface. The high density of teak wood means it is an excellent choice for outdoor use.
Overtime, it is natural for untreated furniture to grey slightly due to prolonged sun and rain exposure. This color change is purely superficial and does not impact the strength or quality of the timber.
To keep your Ethnicraft outdoor furniture in optimal condition we suggest fitting a custom rain cover during seasons where it is not in use or periods of bad weather. Ensure the furniture is thoroughly clean and dry before applying the cover protection. For long periods of time we recommend that, if possible, any soft furnishings, cushions etc should be removed and stored indoors.
To remove stubborn stains or superficial scratches to teak surfaces, extra fine sandpaper can be gently used. Always sand in the direction of the wood grain.
Woven in Belgium, Ethnicraft outdoor fabrics are 100% polypropylene, a synthetic material. Polypropylene by its nature is water-repellent, stain-proof, resistant to mould, moths and bacteria like no other synthetic or natural fibre. It is also:
• UV resistant.
• Resistant to the action of acids and alkalis.
• Resistant to humidity and, although not completely
waterproof, it does not absorb water and is quick-
• Maintenance friendly - easily cleaned with clear water
and a natural soap. Covers are machine washable up to 40°C. Do not use any chemical products not designed for polyester.
All sit cushions are equipped with an anti-slip fabric on the bottom to ensure cushions remain in the correct position.
The naturally occurring surface oil in teak can cause stains on cushions. To clean, use a damp white cloth, natural soap and clear water. Please note, natural oil transfer from wood to fabric is a recurring process that cannot be prevented.
All cushions are inserted with a long lasting, quick dry
foam. This dries quickly after exposure to rain, ocean spray, melting snow, morning dew, or moisture and humidity which can penetrate even a “water repellent” outer shell over a period of time.
