A tree is like a book
A tree is like a book in which time writes. Many city trees end up in the shredder and are fired up, as happens with secret documents that may no longer be read. Sin anyway! In more and more cities there is an initiative to really reuse this wood in a sustainable way and to give it back to the city in a new form, such as music boxes!
Wood full of stories
The wood for the music boxes is carefully selected by Rob. They are made from the trees that stood in or near the city, on a square, in a street, park or city forest, perhaps in a place where you like to come, you may have passed them hundreds of times! That is what makes this wood so special. We know where the tree stood and sometimes there are still pictures of it. In short: Wood full of stories!
Interactive tree map
This card shows all the trees from which boxes were once made. Click on the icon at the top left to expand / collapse the menu.
If you click on a tree on the map or in the menu, more info and photos will appear if available.
Photos of wood species.
Wood from some trees is exclusive and slightly more expensive for various reasons. This is due to a very small stock, hard-to-process wood or expensive wood price.
Please note that these photos only give an impression! Color and drawing of the wood are different with every box, even if it is made from the same tree!
