Each Urban Ashes’ item is handcrafted from reclaimed wood and intentionally featuring through its natural character and history. The skilled craftsmanship behind each piece is the result of a partnership between individuals that strive to mentor and train our crew who, at one time, may have lived behind bars, incarcerated, felt no hope and discarded, like the once discarded wood they now work with. The company’s passion and mission to find beauty that others overlook, gives new purpose to the crew and materials that once were deemed hopeless.
Your support of Urban Ashes directly impacts on conserving our valuable natural resources, decreasing input to our landfills while empowering one of the most disadvantaged demographics of our workforce, our returning ex-felons. All the hard work each Urban Ashes crew member puts in, transforms the salvaged wood into something beautiful for the world to cherish. In the process, they transform themselves into vital, productive and beautiful members of our vibrant society.
