These garden tools are designed by Grafa and handmade locally in Melbourne’s inner west, using readily available copper, bronze and hardwood timber materials.
Much of the copper is up-cycled, reclaimed tube collected from metal recycling centers around Melbourne.
Copper is mainly used because it is malleable enough to shape but being single tube, it is still strong enough to handle years in the garden. It is also infinitely recyclable, even 50% of new copper is made from recycled copper.
Copper can be cleaned after use with a damp rag.
Over time a natural patina will emerge which can be enjoyed for it’s own beauty. The patina will come and go with use in the soil, more use means less patina.
Timber stand not available for purchase, only used for display purposes.
