Yes, 100%. The Woodio material and all Woodio products are made from 100% waterproof solid wood composite material with UV, scratch, chemical and dirt resistant coating.

Woodio material is far more impact resistant than ceramic materials , making it practically unbreakable in normal use.

Woodio washbasins are maintenance free and their expected life time is the same as with any traditional bathroom materials – or even longer.

If necessary, clean your Woodio washbasin with a dampened soft cloth and mild non-abrasive dish detergent or soap. However, do not use wool, hard or sharp tools which can stratch the surface of the sink.

Our brand

We are here to make a difference.

The ceramic industry is among the most polluting industries globally, so we realized that the bathroom industry has lot to improve. Our Woodio material innovation was inspired by an idea of making more sustainable wooden bathroom tiles. At first, this seemed impossible and extremely challenging, but it was a mountain our team was ready to conquer. And we're so glad we did, because a new material was born! Our role as an eco-design company is to raise discussion around topics that have an impact on the well-being of our Earth. As a brand we want to offer a solution that is less of a burden to the environment and change the way the world thinks about bathrooms.
