Gommier wood has been a favorite of the Caribbean people for centuries. The ancient Carib Indians made canoes from this lightweight wood, and the tradition continues today in Dominica and other islands.
Gommier thrives the best in the tropics and in ideal situations can grow 100 feet in five years.
It is the lightest wood in the Caribbean and its unique grain ranges from slight markings to almost completely black.
Each piece is handcrafted and is meant to be used.
This lacquered wood needs simple hand washing with soap and water and immediate drying.
