About Us?

The start of an empire 

In 2016, Organic Empire officially began. With no name or any idea of the potential we could reach, we would repair damaged furniture and custom-build a variety of products for family, friends and every now-and-then, an ‘actual’ customer. We
know humble beginnings and what it feels like to start from rock bottom. Some months, “optimism and passion” was our only source of income.
In 2019, one of the world’s finest wood-crafstmen joined our team – Ernst Mittermair, and this was truly the moment Organic Empire would grow as a company.
Ernst is a qualified wood joiner- having grown up in the 1930s in his father’s furniture manufacturing company in Austria. Building furniture from the tender age of 8 years old, Ernst is one of the last few Master tradesman in his field. In 1994 Ernst moved from Austria to South Africa, and what was meant to be a holiday- South Africa’s culture 
and beautiful weather convinced him to stay here permanently. As head of production and management, Ernst’s integrity and craftsmanship goes beyond the normal standards of furniture manufacturing and his experience and passion is reflected into our brand. 
Organic Empire was officially named and registered in 2022 and we would like to thank each person involved in making our dream as a company come true. Our brand is about creating quality, sustainable furniture, using high-end timber and finishes with the intention of adding value to your lifestyle. We have incorporated living plants and off grid-living accessories into our brand, welcoming a fresh approach to sustainable, green living. We look forward to being a part of your lifestyle and making new friendships along the way. There is no growth in comfort.
