Hawaiian Koa is one of the world’s most beautiful hardwoods, which grows only in Hawaii. Koa is world renowned, and used for the highest value finishes in furniture and commercially used products.

Koa trees are rare, tropical hardwood generally found at elevations of 2000 plus feet on the upper slopes of the islands of Hawaii (Big Island) and Maui. Koa tree reaches in height of 100 feet or more, with trunk diameters as large as 5 feet. This unique, native wood is prized for its beautiful range of color and lustrous grain from near black through reds, orange and russet tones to yellow and gold. The grain with its wavy lines and swirling color, give luster and a sense of depth of Koa unequaled by any other exotic wood in the world.
