This beautiful figured wood is English Fiddleback Sycamore. This large tree is related to the Maple species and grows in much of Europe. These cuffs are hand made from select English Fiddleback Sycamore veneer with a consistent silky "figure" that runs perpendicular to the grain. A unique organic treatment is used to tint the natural tannic acid inherent in the wood and cause a gray tone. This version is mixed with an oxidized walnut interior. They are then protected with a water-based finish to maintain a desaturated aged gray look.
