Saman wood

Its color ranges from light to medium
brown, with a sporadic cinnamon-like
tone and hues between orange, amber and red.

Samán wood is also known as Caribbean, Mayan or Aztec Walnut. It is a tropical wood which grows in Mexico and Central America. Denominated a sustainable wood since it has no major difficulty in spreading and growing. We work together with Taracea, a wood and furniture manufacturer in Mexico. Inspired by nature and committed to preserving its beauty, they hand-select all woods and process them, uncovering their natural elegance. Honoring the life of every tree in the process and turning its wood into a characterful object. Our collaborations focus both on emphasizing elegance and highlighting their aesthetic qualities. Taracea master craftsmen enrich every piece with years of experience and tradition. Its color ranges from light to medium brown, with a sporadic cinnamon-like tone and hues between orange, amber and red. Having a uniform texture and a medium luster allows this wood to take on a high natural polish. It becomes easy to work with, even though it is a heavy and mediumdense wood. For its strong, durable and resistant to weather characteristics, it has been widely used for docks, working well against water and humidity. What makes this wood so characteristic also when varnished, is its fine texture with straight open grains. When adding a coat of varnish, this texture manages to shine through and stand out. A material beautiful to see, warm and rich in textures. Its characteristics being unattached to a period, timeless.
