The furniture is designed by British/Australian Citizen, Penny Camplisson, the Founder and Owner of Osier Belle who has lived in Sydney for nearly 20 years. The factory is located in Cirebon, Java where we have a highly skilled (and valued) team who make our furniture for you. The expertise and expense to make what we create in Australia is simply not possible. Teak, the most durable timber available for outdoor furniture cannot be sourced in Australia and if it were shipped and then made here, the prices would be unrealistic for retail sale. If you visit a store that suggests it is made in Australia or Europe (or USA!), we would recommend you push for confirmation this is true as we know all the factories that produce for these retailers (and they are not far from ours!).
