A collection of rare hardwoods only available from us under our Aqua Natural Brand.
These beautiful woods hail from the Southern Island of New Zealand. During the changes of seasons in the Southern Alpine Mountains strong weather events cause massive “slips” in rocky areas covered in native New Zealand Hardwood Trees.
These trees are broken up and washed down the mountains into the ice gold glacial rivers.
Slowing they make their way towards the West Coast Ocean River mouths. The twists and turns on this long trip naturally remove all the bark and oils from the wood resulting in a paper smooth final work of art.
- The purifying water of the pristine rivers also wash away any tannins and oils from the woods.
