What is Forest Gold?

From wood chip to substrate...bul-cat-fg-2

Forest Gold is a natural, fibrous timber derived material produced with locally sourced wood chips.

These wood chips are heated to high temperatures and spun into well-defined fibres using high pressure steam – a process that ensures the material is free from weeds, diseases and harmful organisms. 

We call this material Forest Gold
