Jarrah (Eucalyptus Marginita) is a native Hardwood to the South West Region of Western Australia.

Amongst the world’s hardwoods, Jarrah is almost unrivalled, known for its remarkable colour, strength and durability.

Jarrah’s high structural qualities have long been famous, and it is renowned worldwide for its density, resistance to insect attack and its beautiful rich red colour which deepens over time into a soft burgundy.

Jarrahs beautiful colouring and exceptional hardness are a perfect combination, and as such is the preferred timber for indoor and outdoor use around the world.

Its natural properties include a high resistance to weather, rot, termites and even marine borers.

The wood from a Jarrah tree has a fine, variable grain with occasional natural features. Jamel has recently acquired a limited amount of natural edge feature Jarrah. This timber was located in a shed in the southern suburbs of Perth and has been air seasoning since 1999. Each piece of furniture manufactured from this rare natural edge timber contains distinctive grain patterns and excting red ocre colour variations. These remarkable characteristics of Jarrah timber are born from bush fires, storms and searing heat which result in unique natural makings. These natural features combined with distinctive Jamel design ensure that each piece of furniture has its own signature and characteristic. No two pieces of furniture will ever be the same.

MARRI


(Corymbia Calophylla) is a Eucalyptus Hardwood which has similar strength and density features of Jarrah and it is commonly referred to as “West Australian Redgum”. A Marri tree can grow up to 40m in height. The Marri tree has flaky grey bark, and is widely found in the south-west region of Western Australia in the Jarrah and Karri forests. It is saffron in colour that darkens to a golden tone as it ages. It has the distinctive gum veins and sap characteristics which make one of the most unique timbers in the world.

Each piece of furniture manufactured from Marri contains distinctive grain patterns and exciting colour variations. These remarkable characteristics of Marri timber are born from bush fires, storms and searing heat which result in unique natural markings. These natural features combined with the distinctive Jamel design ensure that each piece of furniture has its own signature and characteristics. No two pieces of furniture will ever be the same.

Jamel is Australia’s largest manufacturer of Marri furniture. Over the past 16 years Jamel has mastered the art manufacturing the finest Marri timber furniture.

These striking ecological signs tell a story of the history of the tree and the place in the world it grew.
