Dörfler bows use natural resources

with responsibility

Dörfler is committed to sustainability of used resources. We are particularly dedicated to support reforestation projects of pernambuco trees, which come from northern and central-east Brazil.

Since 2007, this rare type of tree is an internationally protected species. Exporting pernambuco wood is therefore a complicated task requiring detailed consideration. Dörfler is a member and supporter of the I.P.C.I. Organisation, which is committed to the sustainability and reforestation of this precious type of tree.

Pernambo is a very slow-growing wood. Trees from reforestation projects are therefore unlikely to be available for bow making in the near future. Fortunately, Dörfler Bogen has in its reserve at least 30-year-old stocks of wood.
