Bog-wood is a rare form of timber that is comparable to some of the world's most expensive tropical hardwoods. Bog-wood is usually found in soils that are mostly wet, sandy, gravel and clay-like above high underground waters. Wood is naturally preserved from decay by bog conditions. Under the influence of the minerals and iron from the water bog-wood turns from golden-brown to completely black, while increasing its hardness to such a level that it can only be carved with the use of specially grind and exceptionally firm tools. Dark grain indicates that trees have been buried in peat swamps or wet fields for over 6000 years. Bog-wood is prized for its high percentage of minerals, which makes wood especially resistant to burning, and thousand-year long washing gives a neutral scent. We use organic flaxseed oil and beeswax for perfect finish.
