We pride ourselves on using Eco-friendly Hardwood. Otherwise known as the Rubber Tree, using these trees is economical and good for the Earth and here is why:
After 30 years, a decline in latex production has made only tapping rubber trees for their sap uneconomic. The trees are removed by hand and replaced with new seedlings. In the past, felled rubber trees were either burnt on the spot or used as fuel for locomotive engines, brick firing or latex curing. The wood is now used in the manufacture of high-end furniture. It is valued for its dense grain, stability, attractive color and acceptance of different finishes. It is also prized as an (environmentally friendly) wood, since it makes use of trees that have been cut down at the end of their latex-producing life cycle and are always replaced with new seedlings.
When shopping for the perfect piece of furniture to organize your kitchen, kid s room, jewelrey, books, media or entry way, think RUBBERWOOD.
Did you know?
Rubberwood is a plantation grown hardwood from the maple family and is an ideal choice for furniture manufacturing because of its durability and tendency to resist shrinking, warping or cracking. After its 26-30 years of latex production, the rubber trees are cut down and new ones are planted. So, unlike other woods that are cut down for the sole purpose of producing furniture, rubberwood is used only after it completes its latex producing cycle and dies, making it eco-friendly. Rubberwood is a durable, inexpensive and earth-friendly choice for home furnishings.
