Maple plywood, birch plywood and white melamine. We choose these woods for their good looks, sturdiness, and eco-friendliness. They meet the strict California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards, ensuring they are safe for indoor air and environmentally friendly. This choice reflects our commitment to environmental care and delivering top-quality, safe products.

Natural Maple Plywood - It's got a smooth, hand-varnished finish and edges we tint just a bit to give it that cool, minimalist Scandinavian vibe. Plus, it’s a bit lighter in color, giving it a fresh, modern look.

Natural Birch Plywood - This one comes pre-finished from our supplier for a nice, clear look. We hand-seal the edges to enhance the layers’ natural patterns, and it's got a slightly, just slightly richer hue than maple, which really warms up the place.

White Melamine - for all the white parts that you see in the pictures, to bring a nice neutral balance to your space.

More about CARB 2 and TSCA Title VI

CARB 2 is a California regulation that sets strict limits on formaldehyde emissions from hardwood plywood, particleboard, and MDF. It mandates third-party certification and periodic testing to ensure products comply with these standards.

TSCA Title VI is a federal regulation under the Toxic Substances Control Act. It establishes national formaldehyde emission standards for composite wood products, aligning closely with CARB 2. This regulation requires third-party certification and proper labelling.
