This is a unique material owing to its beauty and quality. The wood of oak has been lying for hundreds of years on the bottom of rivers or in the layers of the ground at a low water level.

There, being devoid of oxygen, tannin which remains in the wood react with the salts of iron contained in water. As a result oak acquires unique physical properties: colour, firmness, longevity. A bog oak is extracted from the bottom of water bodies 6-14 metres deep (photo).

Considering the fact that all tree trunks are found in different conditions, each timber acquires a unique structure and colour.
