JARAH | In Depth

Tough, hard, heavy and strong. Jarah is a beautiful, rich wood with vibrant, reddish tones from Western Australia. It is popular in Australia for wood flooring and also for heavy construction. It has never been a particularly sought after wood for interior projects in the UK, but has been used externally for decking because of its resilience. Stocks are now seriously depleted worldwide, making it quite an expensive option for wooden flooring.
