Our main import products

Our main product is charcoal (including white charcoal, black charcoal, sawdust briquette charcoal)


“SAWDUST BRIQUETTE CHARCOAL” is charcoal bar of either hexagonal or square cross section with a center hole. Size and shape of charcoal are manufactured to the general requirement of each country. Generally, square charcoal is in great demand in Japan whereas most buyers in Korea generally accept the hexagonal shape.

Briquette, a compressed mass of charcoal or other flammable material, often in regular shape of a pillow, brick or even in bar form of either hexagonal or square shape (the most commonly available form of sawdust briquette charcoal).

The sawdust briquette charcoal is produced without binder/chemical in the binding process, thus eliminating any unpleasant odor during burning. The same had been a popular barbecue charcoal for the last few decades especially in Korea and Japan, indoor barbecue is done almost in all restaurants in Korea today.


To make black charcoal the wood is carbonized (partial burning with little air) at temperatures between 400 and 700 °C, then the kiln is sealed until the burning stops and the heat slowly dies away. Now see the surface of the charcoal is black.

Black charcoal is soft and retains the outer layer of the wood. It is also easy to ignite and burns hot enough that it was used as fuel for tea ceremony, and ordinary daily food cooking including industrial use during the former times.

Charcoals produced around the world are mostly soft black charcoal type.


White charcoal is made by carbonizing the wood at a moderately low temperature, then, near the end of the process, the kiln temperature is raised to approximately 1000 °C to make the wood red hot. When making white charcoal, you need to be quite skilled in removing the charcoals, which have turned deep red, from the kiln and quickly smother it with a covering of powder to cool it. The powder is a mixture of sand, earth, and ash. This will then give a whitish color to the surface of the charcoal. This is where the name “white charcoal” was derived. The quick rise in temperature, followed by quick cooling, burns up the outer layer of the wood leaving a smooth hardened surface. It is also called a “hard charcoal”.

As tested by the Charcoal Standard Specification Test by the Agricultural Ministry of Japan, white charcoal may take some more time to ignite, but its thermal conductivity is way better than ordinary black charcoal. The flame produced by white charcoal lasts long enough to be used as a fuel.

White charcoals are now used for industrial purposes like electronic components to medical applications in the scientific world.

Bamboo Rattan Furniture‎

In Vietnam, handicraft (including items made from bamboo, rattan,…) is a smokeless industry, providing high-value collection. Bamboo and rattan are considered as the most traditional materials to create really nice handmade items which attract both domestic and international customers because of the positive effect on the socioeconomic issues of Vietnamese villages.

Both rattan and bamboo grow best in tropical areas. Rattan, however, is a vine-like plant, which requires support from other sources, as it cannot stand on its own. This means that rattan must be grown around other trees. Bamboo plants are much stouter and can be grown independently. Both species grow very quickly, sometimes up to six metres per year! This rapid growth makes either species an extremely attractive crop choice for farmers in developing countries, as multiple harvests can be grown per year.

The main physical difference between the two is that bamboo is hollow; rattan is not. Because bamboo is hollow, it is inflexible, as any bending would cause it to snap. Although bamboo is very hard, rattan is much more durable. When bamboo grows, it is always uniform in thickness, no matter how tall the plant becomes. Rattan becomes thicker as it grows.

Amongst many other things, bamboo and rattan are both used to create furniture. Although superficially they look similar, their physical properties determine the type of designs they can be used to create. Rattan is flexible when processed allowing it to be woven into intricate designs and patterns. Bamboo on the other hand, is rigid. As a result, bamboo furniture is often more simplistic in design as the stems must be arranged parallel to each other. Often, both are used in the same furniture, with the main body made from bamboo and bindings created using flexible rattan.

Generally, raw rattan is processed into several products to be used as materials in furniture making. The various species of rattan range from several millimetres up to 5–7 cm in diameter. From a strand of rattan, the skin is usually peeled off, to be used as rattan weaving material. The remaining “core” of the rattan can be used for various purposes in furniture making. Rattan is a very good material mainly because it is lightweight, durable, suitable for outdoor use, and—to a certain extent—flexible.

Furniture making

Rattans are extensively used for making furniture and baskets. When cut into sections, rattan can be used as wood to make furniture. Rattan accepts paints and stains like many other kinds of wood, so it is available in many colours, and it can be worked into many styles. Moreover, the inner core can be separated and worked into wicker.

Handicraft and arts

Many of the properties of rattan that make it suitable for furniture also make it a popular choice for handicraft and art pieces. Uses include rattan baskets, plant containers and other decorative works.
