Our mission is develop, produce and distribute the best available hardwood alternative in the market place. Our aim is to have a positive effect on the whole Chain of custody, from bamboo forest to end user.

As long as there will be a demand for illegally logged hardwoods, there will be a supply. We provide the right materials on the demand side and whole heartily support the use of sustainable legal hardwoods and modified softwoods. The right mix will help the rain forests / the lungs of the world to recover.

Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind. - BRUCE LEE
