About us – and some reviews

Eden Timber was started in George, Western Cape, South Africa by Andreas (Andy) Sittig. The picturesque city of George is known as the “Heart of the Garden Route” and well known for its timber industry and fine carpentry.

Originally from Germany, Andy trained as a German Master Carpenter in the 1970’s and has been making beautiful wooden products ever since! Clientele always get top-quality, solid wood products made by him and his well-trained staff. His client list includes the Mövenpick Group in Germany, the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Oubaai, The Pearl Hotel in Wilderness and many residents at Pinnacle Point, Oubaai, Fancourt and Simola Golf estates.

Whilst the bread-and-butter of Eden Timber is conventional furniture, When he has the time Andy’s passion is creating custom-made furniture.

Corporate gifts like presentation boxes and exotic-wood boards, laser-engraved with a company logo or details are also popular. Andy has made steak plates, cheese and biltong platters and serving trays in various woods for many corporate clients. George’s world-famous pottery shop “Wonki Ware” gets its individual, sliding lid, laser-engraved, wooden packing cases from Andy. Nigella Lawson sells some of these online. Magnum bottles of Retief Goosen’s “Goose Wines” were presented to winners at St Andrews Golf Course in Scotland in Andy’s beautiful, lacquered wine presentation boxes a few years back!

Eden Timber has a wonderful “vibe” and many customers have become friends with Andy who is known for his wicked sense of humour!!! The workshop is always full of laughter and the cheerful staff is considered family by Andy and his wife Wendy. Visitors are always welcomed with open arms at the factory. Our factory is situated in the George Industrial area, No 8 Ossie Urban Street. You are welcome to visit any time but it is usually better to call first to make sure Andy is available- 082 448 7727.

“The storage bed is exactly what I wanted – one can use every inch underneath for storage and I like the hidden compartment very much.
It looks very neat and you can see the bed is of high quality and workmanship!
Thank you very much! I would definitely recommend your products to others.” KB March 2021
