Highly versatile - for making handles (knives, fishing rods, door handles, shaving brushes), turnery work, artwork, jewellery, etc. bm1 is not only pleasing to the eye with its interesting texture but also has a smooth, warm feel. But it also has many technical and usage-related advantages. Birch bark is extremely durable, very light (380-550 kg/m³), fungistatic and bacteriostatic, water-repellent, highly moisture-resistant, slip-proof even when wet, easy-care, sustainable and ecologically produced.
Each product made of bm1 is unique. Made from numerous individual layers of birch bark, this is a vivid material whose colour, growth pattern and texture vary greatly. A patented manufacturing process tailored to the material characteristics of birch bark allows high stability at a low weight. Compared to other natural materials, bm1 keeps its shape extremely well, especially when exposed to moisture.
