WE ARE PIONEERS in the specialization of the integral use of Agave (Pita) wood, creating a wide range of high quality musical instruments and crafts sold around the globe. Commited to a sustainable life-philosophy, the creation of our products is entirely carried under a responsible zero waste production process. Thanks to a careful selection of materials, all our creations are unique pieces, sanded by hand and treated with a homemade blend of natural oils. The exclusive use of a special non-toxic wood glue is as essential for us, as the use of 100% solar energy for all the machines in our workshop. The “wood from the desert” tells a story and being the Agave the identity mark of the province, our products are ideal souvenirs and typical gifts hand-made in Almería.
THE WOOD FROM THE DESERT
Agave-wood is harvested once the plant has completed its life cycle, a manual and environmentally friendly work without causing any damage to the land. This aspect makes it a 100% sustainable resource. Due to its unique characteristics such as its rapid growth of up to 1.5m / week, the wood that is obtained from the Agave could be described as a combination of bamboo and balsa wood. The hardness of this material is comparable to oak, it’s lighter than balsa, as colorful as tropical woods, 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.
