Why choose wooden flooring in larch?
Larch is a wood grown in our Dolomite mountains. With reddish-yellow hues, even if with a particularly low level of hardness, it is a wood traditionally used in houses and chalets in our mountain areas. This wood is highly sustainable due to being so fast-growing, sourced from PEFC-certified forests located within a mere 300 kilometres from our production site.
