The natural burr wood grain on this Casa pen box is stunning to look at and has an aromatic smell that is similar to cedarwood. Thuya is a rare wood that comes from the new surface roots of the Tetraclinis articulata conifer tree. The tree is from the same family as cedar and has a natural pine scented oil that is widely used in aromatherapy and homeopathy. Typically the tree is at least 70 years old before being cut for Thuya wood production.
The Casa pen box has a sliding lid and is brilliant for those creative moments. Simply slide the box open to access your stored pens and pencils that will be ready for use whenever you need them. This Casa pen box has been handmade by skilled artisans in Morocco, Africa.
Exotic Thuya grows exclusively in Morocco, and is treasured for its beautiful wood, and its ability to provide an income for many people in Morocco who make a living from crafting and trading Thuya. Due to the handmade / natural nature of these products, designs may slightly vary but loveliness comes as standard. They are made entirely by hand using traditional skills handed down from generation to generation.
Thuya wood was featured in luxury cars during the 1920s and even to today it is in high demand. Whilst the tree once grew in abundance throughout Morocco and Algeria, due to over harvesting, it is now one of the most exclusive woods in the world that is also in short supply. This means that thuya wood is not sustainable and this is a huge problem for the Moroccan people who rely heavily on it. Luckily Morocco is home too many other wonderful materials that are sustainable.
