Arches from Schaeffer – Aracruz, Brazil from sustainable IPÊ wood

Schaeffer bows are made in Brazil, from well-stored certified IPE wood. At a time when access to pernambuco is impossible due to current regulations, it is important that the industry takes environmental considerations seriously. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that for the first time in Scandinavia I can offer bows made from Ipê (Handroanthus spp.) also known as Brazilian walnut. This is not an endangered species of tree, and is an excellent alternative to the traditionally used pernambuco.

The bow makers are highly qualified and work under good working conditions and have good wages. The Schaeffer family has approval for the wood, production and export of their bows. A branded tulip on the log symbolizes a guarantee of sustainable bow production with respect for people and nature.

A wide range of bows is available for trials at any time. The bows can be sent all over Norway for non-binding trial.
