Purple Heart or Peltogyne pubescensis is an endangered species from South America. When cut it turns a greyish colour then quickly returns to a vibrant eggplant purple.
Most trees range between 100 and 200 years until mature and due to over forestation Purple Heart or Violet Wood is becoming almost impossible to obtain.
We only source our purple heart from existing buildings, instruments or stock. The continued logging of the Amazon threatens so many species such as Purple Heart and its time for this to stop.
Petition against unsustainable logging around our planet and help keep our natural beauties alive.
