Koa

 

Exhibition    Presentation    Hobby

Koa (acacia koa), which is now only found on a few of the islands of Hawaii (Kauai, Maui and the big island Hawaii) is one of the few woods in the world that has figure which is three dimensional in appearance. It has rich red, gold and chocolate colors glowing in the wood, which is why it is considered the wood of Kings.

​Because Hawaiian Koa is a protected species we are careful to purchase koa that is authorized for harvest by the State of Hawaii.
