A Brief History

Shou Sugi Ban, also known as Yakisugi, derives from an ancient Japanese exterior cladding treatment used to preserve wood by charring it with fire. The treatment was introduced after Japan fell into short supply of driftwood which was collected from the coastlines for its prized appearance and durability after enduring a natural treatment process of saltwater, surf and sun.

Traditionally the timber used for charring was ‘Sugi’ wood, Cryptomeria, commonly known as Japanese Cedar which was used for residential exterior cladding, fencing and decking applications.

The term Shou Sugi Ban 焼杉板 simply translates to ‘burnt cedar board’.
