Bows from Schaeffer’s workshop in Aracruz, Brazil

The Schaeffer bows and bows stamped Jean de Smet are made in Brazil, from well-stored certified pernambuco tree. The bow makers are highly qualified and work under good working conditions and have good wages. The Schaeffer family has a state approval for the wood, production and export of their bows. From each bow, one Euro goes to Schaeffer’s private pernambuco replanting project. A branded tulip on the log symbolizes a guarantee of sustainable bow production with respect for people and nature. Take the time to see the pictures below on this page!

A wide range of bows is available for testing at any time. The bows can be sent all over Norway for non-binding trial. Prices are incl. 25% VAT.
