The idea for OnWood grew when our first born, Georgie, stood up and began to grow. It’s no old chestnut – like many families, when we were growing up, the average kiwi family practically lived in the same house and as tradition would have it, someone special would regularly mark our heights on a doorway.
We wanted this same tradition for our children, and other families from every corner of NZ and the rest of the world. The OnWood Height Charts were born. While preserving family memories was the essence of the project, we soon found ourselves embracing the concept of preservation and sustainability into the mission of the business. This began when sourcing beautiful reclaimed native timber, and is incorporated into the paint used, the production processes and the packaging.
“We received our fun height chart as a gift for our little lady’s 1st birthday. It looks fab in her bedroom and it’s ideal for us as we move regularly for my husband’s job. This way we get to take all those special memories with us!! Thank you!”
“I received one of your height chart with my daughters name on it yesterday as a gift from a very dear friend! What a beautiful piece of work – will be kept with our family for ever.”
“I bought a couple of height charts and my kids (and I) love them! They are such a wonderful keepsake to treasure and look fabulous on the walls!”
“Our new height chart has just arrived and it is fantastic, I couldn’t be more thrilled!! Thank you so much for such a beautiful handmade product. We will love it for years to come!”
“We just love the natural look of wood and these height charts add a bit of the natural wood to our home. It has been gorgeously restored and has the added bonus of being able to be moved if we ever move house. What a great idea and beautifully made!!”
