JATOBA

EXOTIC LOOK MEETS
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE

The color of the Jatoba is truly one-of-a-kind. While its sapwood provides a pinkish-white hue, its heartwood ranges from pinkish-brown to reddish-brown. Known for being lustrous and having a fine grain from time to time, its mix of shades makes it a very natural and elegant choice.

ITS ROYAL STATUS IS BASED ON:
  • Its natural resistance and durability properties against rot, decay, and insects.
  • The long lifespan of over 50 years
  • The Jatoba exudes a resin named copal or jutaicica used to make varnish.
  • The passage of time provides it with a particular appearance that gives rise to its nickname: “Brazilian Cherry”.
  • As it is not an oily wood compared to teak, it can be polished to a beautiful shine.
  • Jatoba is the favorite on furniture, cabinetry, and other small specialty items.
  • Its Class A rating for fire, comparable to steel and concrete.
