Unlike woods commonly found in Europe or the United States, the exotic woods we use (see below) have many advantages. Indeed, these are IMPUTRESCIBLES, which means that insects and fungi do not attack this kind of wood. NO TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY. In addition, because of their higher densities, exotic woods are much more resistant. The woods we use are entirely legal.
