Why choose wooden flooring in ash?

Ash wood features striped and flamed fibres with a yellowish hue. For the Cadorin production process, the ash is heat-treated in ovens to render the wood pulp very dark in tone (like wenge) throughout the entire thickness of this noble wood, a treatment that serves aesthetic purposes whilst also increasing the stability of the timber.
