WE ARE PIONEERS in the specialization of the integral use of Agave (Pita) wood. This material is harvested once the plant has completed its life cycle, an aspect that makes it a true 100% sustainable resource obtained from the European desert in Almería (southern Spain).
WE CELEBRATE OUR 27th ANNIVERSARY in the creation of musical instruments and handicrafts sold around the globe. The entire manufacturing process is carried out by our professional craftsman Tim Bernhardt. Thanks to a careful selection of materials, our eco-friendly creations are characterized by excellent quality in unique pieces, sanded by hand and treated with a homemade blend of natural oils. Following the philosophy of a zero-waste production, the exclusive use of a special non-toxic wood glue is as essential to us as the use of 100% solar energy in our workshop.
YEARS OF EXPERIENCE were necessary to acquire the adequate knowledge in order to obtain high quality raw materials. Due to its unique characteristics such as its rapid growth of up to 1.5 meters per week, Agave-wood is exceptional. Like a combination between bamboo and balsa wood, it’s comparable to oak, but lighter than balsa, as colorful as tropical wood, warm in sound, easy to work with, and above all: as “desert wood” it has a high educational value.
With the purchase of our products you collaborate with our Artisan Association PITA ESCUELA del Río Aguas, a center for environmental artistic education that provides activities that are experienced with all senses in direct contact with nature.
