DAPO is Malaysia’s first PEFC – certified homeware brand, which offers a unique collection of sustainable products that are specially designed and locally – crafted. DAPO was founded in 2015 by Malaysian “Green Carpenter” Harith Ridzuan, a designer maker hailing from Kuala Lumpur. As the eldest out of 10 siblings, Harith leads the family’s 25-year old furniture making business as a second-generation woodworker and has made over 500 different pieces in his career.
His latest brand DAPO was inspired by the woodworking family’s huge passion for food. It was only natural then for them to develop their special range of wooden kitchenware and homeware to reflect on the important fusion of design, gastronomy, and family.
