Aotearoa – New Zealand
New Zealand is one of the most picturesque and photogenic places on earth. A small island nation of less than 4.5 million people, New Zealand is ade up of two major land masses, the North Island – Te Ika a Maui and the South Island – Te Wai Pounamu.
New Zealand is located in the South West Pacific Ocean, approximately 1,500kms southeast of Australia. Due to its relative remoteness and being water locked, New Zealand was one of the last countries on earth to be discovered and settled.
The country is made up of some spectacular landscapes, from vast mountain ranges, steaming volcanoes, to sweeping coastlines, making it hte perfect background for high budget movies such as Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit by Sir Peter Jackson.
New Zealand is a natural playground for thrill seekers and adventures and those who simply just want to visit for the culture and landscapes.
The majestic rimu can be found throughout New Zealand. Mature specimens grow to a height of over 60metre (200ft) and up to 1000 years of age. Heart rimu with a red/brown grain is one of the most beautifully figured woods in the world.
A growing scarcity, fuelled by felling bans and ravenous demand has made rimu a highly sought after and priced decorative timber. This product is made from recycled NZ rimu.
This product is finished with heat/scratch resistant lacquer. It should be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
