All production is made locally in Italy, in the area between the town of Pesaro and Urbino by expert craftsman.
The wooden parts for the houses are all made and assembled in the craft laboratory “Il Mondo di Giomilla”, situated in the Italian village of Tavoleto, and all wood come from sustainably managed forests.
Various types of reused high quality solid wood is utilized on the rounded walls of the pet-houses for two very important reasons:
- To reuse wood coming from production scrap of other objects (toys, furniture …). These precious pieces of wood usually end up as firewood as they are difficult to reuse. Burning these high quality pieces of wood is a real waste! This reduces Giomilla’s production costs making the product more affordable without compromising on quality, over that much more eco-friendly.
- The slight colour variations of the wood give the pet-houses a beautiful chromatic effect making them quite unique. These variations will always be different and they are produced according to the craftsman’s taste.
High quality birch plywood is used on the flat wooden walls. The decorative holes on the back flat wall are for both better ventilation inside the pet-house and for handling purposes when placing or moving the pet-house.
Assembly is carried out using strips of wood which make a strong interlocking connection between the wooden walls (no metal joints are used). The PVA glue solution is additionally added for give more solidity to the structure.
