Interesting facts

*The birch trees around the lakes of Finland are also called “Koivu” by the inhabitants of Finland. “Koivu” refers to shining light.

*Heat treaded is a special process in which the birch wood is heated to very high temperatures. This process increases the durability of the wood, protects it against rot and decay and reduces its natural shrinkage & expansion (movement in service). Furthermore, a beatiful uniform brown color will be created.
