The woods


Marupá is a wood frequently found in the Amazon region, mainly in the states of Acre, Amapá, Pará, Rondônia and Mato Grosso.

It’s a wood with low density and texture of medium to thick, easy to be worked, which allows a good finish. The color can vary from whitish to slightly yellow or pink, with slightly darker veins forming very smooth regular designs, being exotic due to its clear, almost uniform general appearance.


Pau-Ferro is a wood often found in the states of Goiás, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, São Paulo and Paraná. It is also found in Bolivia.

It’s a density moderately heavy and very durable wood, with a color varying from light-yellow-brown to brown, usually with dark veins forming very characteristic and exotic irregular designs, reasonably difficult to be crafted, but allowing for a good quality finish.
