Vavona burr is harvested from majestic Redwood or Sequoia trees, native to the Pacific coast of North America. They are among the tallest trees in the world reaching heights of over 100 metres.
Vavona burr is an elegant veneer which features alluringly dense and fine patterning in tones that range from light cherry to dark mahogany. These reflect the distinctive colours of the legendary trees’ heartwood which blends beautifully with a lighter toned sapwood.
From our range of natural woods we offer hand crafted refillable notebooks, diaries, sketchbooks, photograph albums, guest/visitors books and slip cases, each wood and stone book is individually made to order.
These are available from our stock of over 40 types wood veneers originating from 6 continents.
These wood veneers not only come from different parts of the world, but also different parts of the tree. This enables us to use veneers that incorporate features such as the highly sought after burr wood. Our woods are sourced from different cuts such as the crown cut, quarter cut and rotary cut. Each cut creates a different appearance and reveals the unique beauty within the wood, an excellent example of this is the wonderful figure and pommele grain patterns.
Using wood veneer not only ensures that we can highlight a wood’s natural beauty and design but it is also a good environmental choice, as in comparison to 1 cubic meter of planked timber which obtains 20m² of usable wood, 1 cubic meter of veneer obtains 900m² usable wood. Wood is also renewable, recyclable and biodegradable.
Please note: As wood is a natural product, your notebook will be completely unique and may differ slightly from the photographs.
