Dense, durable, and rot resistant- the Japanese Cargo woods are well suited in paneling, decking or dimensional applications. Available with original patina or resurfaced for a melody of color of grain.

Color and Surface
A patchwork of browns, light and dark, along with grey highlights create an exotic and playful color mix that fits a range of design visions and environments. Despite the highly varied look, the aged wood surface is smooth, result of the remarkably hard exotic wood below.
