Reclaimed Chinese Elm
Our Reclaimed Chinese Elm comes from structures that are 200 to 600 or more years old. The source of this material is old rural structures in China that are being taken down in its huge ongoing plan for modernization. The front doors of these old buildings in China are almost always made from simple vertical planks of Elm. These old planks retain their superior hardness and toughness and are a precious resource for our handmade products. Chinese Elm is the hardest of all Elms and renowned for its many wonderful properties. It is also one of the most handsome of all reclaimed species in the world. Our use of these beautiful materials is predominantly engineered wide plank flooring and furniture. The following video shows the first of two full plank by plank inspections of a large Reclaimed Chinese Elm flooring order for one of our customers in The Bahamas.
