WHAT IS BURL: Burl is a rare anomaly that occurs when hundreds of thousands of tiny buds on a tree fail to form branches, instead producing a large knobby outgrowth of exotic, uniquely patterned wood grain.
ABOUT: Rosewood burl patterns are dramatic and magical, some looking like the mysterious surface of an uninhabited planet. The dark richly-grained figured heartwood may stand alone, or include contrasting light-colored sapwood, creating the phenomenon of bi-color burl. Figuring patterns may include bear scratch, bird's eye, blister, curl, dimple, fiddle back, flame, ghost, quilting, or spalting. The occurrence of burl happens in perhaps only one-in-five-hundred rosewood trees, making it extremely rare.
ENVIRONMENTAL: Our raw rosewood burl is recovered from of old-growth rosewood, reclaimed from the Belizean rainforest, a legacy left behind by loggers a century ago. Our enterprise is environmentally friendly and involves no deforestation.
