About Pau Ferro
Pau Ferro (Libidibia ferrea), is a variety of rosewood from South America. This beautiful species is appreciated for the making of high caliber guitar keys, such as the Fender Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster.
In an effort to reduce waste and carbon emissions, the Pau Ferro used by Aubier is FSC certified (simply put, one tree cut equals one tree planted). Additionally, at least 30% of the Pau Ferro veneers we use come from a local company's cuttings. These cuttings, once destined for destruction, are now repurposed to give life to our belts.
The cork-rubber used in Aubier belts is made entirely of recycled materials. The cork comes from wine bottle stoppers and the rubber from used tires. This gives the product the high resilience of rubber and the natural feel of cork.
Aubier is proud to support Flash Forest, a Canadian drone reforestation company targeting post-wildfire landscapes across Canada.
We give back 2% of our revenue to support their mission of planting 1 billion trees by 2028.
