Made in Ecuador, finished in Pennsylvania.
Our products get their distinct aesthetic by utilizing dozens of tropical species sourced from the Ecuadorian rainforests that we sustainably manage. In order to ensure the full diversity of the forest, we cannot harvest trees based on their species, meaning the availability for individual species is constantly in flux. This means that every board is completely unique. By purchasing products made from the whole forest, we can guarantee the future of the whole forest.
