Suar tree is an Indonesian variant of Albizia Saman, originating in South America. It was introduced to the region in the mid-19th century by Portuguese colonists as a plantation tree. This naturally fast-growing tree has spread throughout the region and is now widely used in the furniture industry. Suar is a large tropical rain tree that can grow to an altitude of 25 metres. The characteristic huge crown has the shape of an umbrella, thanks to which it naturally creates an isolated, cool climate under dense, leafy branches.
Advantages of suar wood:
The structure of the suar tree is very hard and durable, which makes both furniture and suar tops very popular among customers looking for functional exoticism in their homes. Suar is a wood with exceptionally beautiful colours and unique pore pattern with characteristic expressive contours. For this reason, most suar wood products are left in their natural colouring. The roots of the suar tree are also a valuable material in the furniture industry, which is due to their extraordinary, fine shape. This means that craftsmen and sculptors can be tempted to create such unusual handicrafts and sculptures inspired by their natural beauty.
