We create our products with a focus on finding a balance between timeless and trending designs, local production, and minimal waste. We continuously strive to explore and implement practices that further these values.

We aim to minimise waste in the production of our bespoke pieces, and therefore only produce orders that are placed, avoiding over production and excess stock collecting dust in our studio and adding to our potential waste footprint. Our pieces are all hand-made, and depending on the product, can take between 7-10 days to be sent to you. We value local businesses and therefore get all materials from local suppliers. All ulgi pieces are made by us, in our studio in Noordhoek, in Cape Town, South Africa.

All ulgi pieces have been hand-carved and created using a hands on approach to sculpture, carving and finishing, making all of our pieces unique in their final form. We are continuously looking for ways to be more aware and conscious of our environmental impact. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any suggestions.
