Is your wood ethically sourced?
We specifically use wood burls for our products. The most common types of burls we use are maple and buckeye burls. Burls are the gnarly growths and deformities on trees. You may hear them described as "tumors" or "warts" on trees. They can be in the ground as root burls, at the base of the tree, or even sticking off the tree halfway up. We take these deformities and see something incredible inside of them. Working with each piece is like opening a birthday present, every day!
We buy our burls directly from the people who harvest and collect them. We work with only a few suppliers to ensure that the burls we are using have been responsibly harvested, never from illegal areas and never from endangered species.
