Our mission is to provide high-quality wood products to our clients. This live edge Parota wood slab started its journey in Costa Rica. We import from Costa Rica due to their eco-friendly and sustainable logging practices developed over the last 50 years. We personally visit our distributor to ensure the quality of the wood products we import. The wood slabs are air-dried for multiple months after they are cut into wood slabs. Then they are dried in a steam kiln for three months. The kiln drying process is very important. The drying process releases tension in the wood as well as destroying any potential bugs that may have lived in the tree prior to processing.
