(juglans nigra) is a well-known and beloved North American species. It is favoured for its rich chocolate-brown wood (often with streaks of lighter-coloured sapwood) which is medium in density and relatively stable through changes in humidity. Black walnut can take on somewhat reddish tones as years go by.
sometimes known as "tigerwood", refers to the wood produced by astronium graveolens, a member of the cashew family native to South and Central America. This extraordinary species is revered for its hard and heavy wood characterized by streaks of light and dark. Colours range from deep brown to reddish caramel, often with subtle figure throughout.
Our supply of this valuable wood comes exclusively from tree plantations in Central America where it is reforested on degraded farmland. We are proud to work with ethical companies that put trees back where they used to be, support communities, and provide fair compensation to their workers.
The intricate grain patterns of curly birch (betula pendula var. carelica) are the product of a genetic "flaw" that occurs in a very small percentage of silver birch trees in the region of Karelia (in Finland and Russia). This type of tree, sometimes called Masur birch or Karelian birch, is incredibly rare to come across in the wild.
Although these trees are small, slow-growing, and notoriously difficult to cultivate, a few farmers have made it their life's work to plant and maintain curly birch forests so that one day we could enjoy the patterns you see here. We are certainly grateful for their dedication and happy to support them through our own work.
(acer saccharum) is a common North American tree species native to Canada and the United States. It is perhaps best known for the sugary sap produced by trees growing in the colder portions of its range which is used to produce maple syrup. Sugar maple yields dense and durable wood which is among the most pale in colour of any North American species.
(quercus alba) is a common and well-known hardwood with a broad range across central and eastern North America. Its wood is hard and heavy with a consistent honey-brown colour and distinctive coarse grain texture. White oak has been among the most consistently popular hardwoods available for centuries.
Please note that every pepper mill will be unique due to natural variation in each piece of wood.
