Dörfler bows use natural resources
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.
