Crafted from sustainably and locally grown Blackwood, this board was designed and made by The Paper Rain Project in Marlborough, New Zealand. Each board is unique - boards will vary slightly due to their hand-crafted nature and natural grain of the wood. Sourced just 45km from our workshop and with a range of tones from chocolatey brown to blonde, this hardwood is a stunning choice for our artworks.

This board is a wall-hanging artwork and comes equipped with a fitting suitable for a standard picture hook or nail.

For each sustainably-grown tree felled, an average of 200 native trees are planted in it’s place. Thank you for helping to regenerate native forests in New Zealand.

Summer 2015 brought about the first collaboration between The Paper Rain Project & the young / super talented hand behind Illustrate which saw extremely detailed wild animals adorning our boards. Inspired by a trip to India and the pattern-making in that culture, Toby set about making Zen-like creations within his animal illustrations.

Although Toby is on the opposite side of the Globe, his designs are finding themselves etched into the bamboo, maple and french oak surfaces of our boards & are now taking residence across the Globe with travellers & buyers Worldwide.
