Amber was born as a brand in 2019 on the Cadiz coast, but as a business project it is the result of a personal transformation that began in 2015. At that time, after having lived in 2 beautiful European cities, my wife and I decided to move to Sydney (Australia ) with our children in search of new challenges and learning.
I personally had enjoyed an intense professional career in various fields of engineering, although always employed, and I soon realized that what I was really looking for in Australia was to launch my own business project.
Influenced by the advanced environmental culture and natural exuberance of the environment, I decided to take my then limited carpentry skills to a professional level and also chose to focus on reclaimed wood. This is how Growready – green furniture arose, which 3 years later, when we decided to return to Spain and settle on the Cadiz coast, was reborn as GR – Natural Design.
As soon as we got started and started looking for recycled wood in Cádiz, we realized that the demolition beams we got had more value than the mere fact of being sustainable / recycled. Investigating a bit into the past of the 3 or 4 houses in the old town that we had entered, we found that some were up to 250 years old and in some cases we discovered that very curious characters had inhabited them.
