Is it okay to use exotic woods?

In principle, all our wood comes from India and without exception from certified cultivation. The woods are grown in plantations and monitored and approved by the Indian State Forest Service.

What many people don't know is that there are several hundred types of ebony and rosewood all over the world. Unfortunately, many of the world's ebony and rosewood species, especially African ones, have been considered endangered for many years.

Therefore, instead of using the endangered Indian rosewood (Dalbergia Latifolia), we use the non-endangered tamarind wood (Tamarindus indica), also known as Indian dates. The second type of wood that we use is East Indian ebony (Diospyros melanoxylon), which, unlike African ebony, is not considered to be endangered.

We also want to give something back to nature and therefore plant a tree in India for every Monkey Locks - Locking Tuners Set with wooden buttons sold.
