Karim Eharruyen, founder of DRAAJ, does not consider himself as a creator, but rather a discoverer of existing forms and structures. He does not want to impose a specific meaning, but just passes on what the earth already offers. Karim nurtures these stories with compassion and let them flourish in his objects. He works exclusively with sustainable timber, in an ancient saw mill in the city of Utrecht. With wood species that have grown up not too far away, because recycling materials often have rich stories to tell. And recycling reduces the impact of the production process on nature.
