The story behind
A wetland is an ecosystem that is saturated with water, which in some cases preserves materials such as wood for millennia.
Abonos is a Celtic name which indicates the “fossil” wetland wood type of some rare alluvial areas of the Alps, where minerals and water have started the semi-fossilization process of the submerged trees.
Currents bind the minerals and iron in the water with tannins in the wood, naturally hardening and colouring the wood in the process. This is clearly visible on the chromatics scale of the woodgrain – changing from golden to black – with always unique shades.
This wood finally comes to light like a jewel of the past, through a careful, complex work of recovery and processing.
Like the water over millennia, the alcarol’s transparent resin surrounds the organic shapes of this unique wood, preserving and enhancing all its preciousness and charm.
