A natural ally in the fight against climate change.

Kiri wood, known for its exceptional lightness and strength, comes from the Paulownia tree, which originally comes from East Asia. This sustainable wood has gained popularity worldwide in recent years, not only because of its sustainability, but also because of its versatility in various industries. Its versatility makes it an excellent choice for a range of applications, from furniture to musical instruments to eco-friendly construction. By opting for Kiri wood, you are not only contributing to a sustainable ecosystem, but also choosing a material that combines aesthetics and functionality.

Kiri is used in a wide variety of areas and is constantly finding new applications as a modern and sustainable raw material. Only kiri trees grown in Europe are used for our pruning.


Rapid growth

The Paulownia tree is known for its rapid growth and can reach harvest maturity within just a few years. This characteristic makes Kiri wood an excellent alternative to more traditional, slower-growing types of wood. Kiri is the fastest growing deciduous tree in the world. In the first year, the tree can grow up to six meters – producing as much wood volume as an oak in a tenth of the time.

A green path to the future

This rapid renewal rate makes Kiri wood an environmentally friendly alternative to slower-growing wood species. By choosing Kiri wood, consumers and companies support sustainable forestry that minimizes the impact on the environment.
