Belgian innovation in design
KAROOZ is a surprising new concept in floor and wall coverings, invented by the young Belgian designer, Emma Wardenier. The idea is both simple and clever: connecting pieces of solid wood with rubber joints, thereby creating wood mosaics. A new material that reflects luxury and comfort, adds a touch of poetry to your home and is also remarkably user-friendly.
Made in BelgiumThe wood mosaics are handcrafted in the KAROOZ workshop in Oudenaarde, Belgium. A large part of the production process is done manually under the supervision of the master herself, Emma Wardenier. This means: a keen eye for detail and constantly aspiring to a perfect finishing.By taking on the production completely, KAROOZ can easily deliver custom-made pieces and adapt to your personal wishes. As the entire production process takes place in Belgium, long-distance transport is avoided and CO2 emissions are reduced to a minimum.
KAROOZ contains 2 main elements: wood and rubber. For the wood, KAROOZ only uses carefully selected types of wood. Certified wood types that guarantee sustainable forest management are always our first choice. The second main element, rubber, is sustainably made within the Responsible Care program and the environmental care system ISO 14001. Finally, only ecological materials are used for the finishing layers.
