Rubber wood has a dense grain that is easily controlled in the kiln drying process. Rubber-wood has very little shrinkage making it one of the more stable construction materials available for furniture. It is easily worked, and takes on stains uniformly.

Rubber trees grow in Asia, Africa and South America.

Rubber woods’ most famous feature is the milky white sap, known as latex. Rubber wood produces all the latex used in the world for all rubber based products.

Rubber wood is a true hardwood. In fact, rubber wood is becoming one of the most popular woods used to manufacture furniture.  It is strong, flexible and resistant to fungus, bacteria and mould.

Rubber wood is used only after it completes its latex producing cycle and dies. In other words, this wood is extremely eco-friendly in the sense that we use what was supposed to go to waste.

Rubber wood is naturally light coloured (almost white) and can be painted or stained just like any other wood.
