‘Trees are your best antiques.’ – Alexander Smith
It feels like everyone’s telling us to go green these days. Get a hybrid car! Install solar panels! Buy carbon credits! Sometimes, it all feels a little overwhelming.
Heartwood was created with the idea that small things count. The gifts we give each other shouldn’t be instantly forgettable (another gift voucher), or temporary (like flowers). Instead they should be sustainable symbols: good for giver, receiver, and the environment. Better than a diamond, a tree really is forever – growing, living, greening.
Heartwood was founded in 2009 by Jenni Rowe. An established businesswoman, Jenni founded the luxury Harfield Guest Villa with her husband, Graham, fifteen years ago. In 2000, Harfield Guest Villa was voted best Guesthouse in South Africa. It continues to run successfully.
