Indonesia's furniture and global warming issue

Indonesia`s unique culture and furniture capabilities today are rooted in the country`s history as an outpost of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Arab, and Dutch explorers, colonists and traders and their lasting religious influences coming from Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Christianity. Several Javanese villages perpetuate their legacy of hundreds of years of wood craftsmanship. Surabaya is known for garden furniture, Jepara is famous for hand-crafted designs, and 60,000 specialized workers in Cirebon, West Java, and craft furniture only of rattan. For the last two decades Jepara furniture industries have been driven heavily by foreign buyers. Foreign buyers came to Jepara bringing with them new values, designs, concepts which are transforming Jepara community and its production. In Jepara most of the furniture industry uses teak wood as raw material. For various reasons, Jepara became a place for mass production of low quality teak products, which are sold oversea at a low price.
Beside that, Indonesia has also produced different lines of furniture production. Office furniture, garden furniture and also a high-end furniture have been widely grown all over Indonesia. There are a handful of highly successful manufacturers who have created massive success, mostly in North America by blending warm design and smart sourcing with advanced technology and progressive management techniques. In-house woodworking teachers also join forces with external management consultants in each company to provide new workers the necessary practical knowledge of wood working. At the same time, a permanent Capacity Development Team of problem solvers visits foreign factories recommended by consultants in order to identify potential improvements.

By the issue of global warming, Indonesia would like to prove that the furniture from Indonesia is green furnniture. So, beside considering the quality, nature, and price, Indonesia furniture is also consider to environmental issue, such as global warming issue. In this case, the furniture in Indonesia is called as Green Furniture, that is furniture that is pro-environment, pro-people, and legal. It mean that Indonesia furniture are produced by considering toward environment elements, increase the economy's people and their life, and the wood or other material of it are taken leggally (not from illegal logging).
