About Turn Touch
Built in San Francisco
Each Turn Touch remote goes through an 8-step manufacturing process. The 3D printed button arms are joined to the precision milled mahogany wood with silicone epoxy. Everything is machined right in the center of San Francisco's SoMa district. You know it's quality when the rent is triple what it'd cost to be anywhere else.
Sustainability in the source
The mahogany is sourced from plantations in Central and South America. These plantations are known for producing sustainable cuts in their managed forests, largely due to U.S. import rules. These remotes are being made in the U.S. which means we don't have the luxury of paying a price discount for questionably sourced wood.
In order to produce high quality lumber that's useful for furniture making, loggers have to be selective about the trees they fell. Can't just chop down every one of them because not all will generate productive wood. Nor can they sell that much -- the market's not that big! And it's a choosy one!
What that actually means in terms of wood quality is that it suffers a bit from uniformity, but that's offset by the small size of the remote, which makes small features much more distinguishable.
