When we started our company in back in 2006, it was initially built around products which we had found while visiting personal friends in Chennai, India.  Once our company was established, Mark and I had the amazing opportunity to visit our supplier in Bangalore.

It took us quite a while to find the perfect building ~ but we settled on the largest log cabin which Dunster House supply which is...
