WHY PAULOWNIA TIMBER?
We use 100% Australian grown, plantation grown Paulownia Timber for all our pieces.
Paulownia is strong, light weight and has beautiful character. But unlike hardwoods (that can take hundreds of years to grow), Paulownia only takes up to 10 years to reach maturity, which makes it more renewable.
Paulownia is the fastest growing tree in the world which is why environmentalists call it "The Tree of the Future". Plantation grown is important in avoiding deforestation and the destruction of wildlife habitats and why we don't make furniture from forests.

Why Plantation Grown is the Best Way to Protect Forests
While timber is technically a renewable resource, the kinds of forests that are being logged all over the world, can’t be regenerated in our lifetime. There’s a better way to enjoy timber than paying thousands of dollars for hundreds of years old, single slab tabletops, or mass-produced furniture with timber veneer over chipboard or plywood using “FSC” or “PEFC” logos to justify how sourcing wood from forests is somehow sustainable.
