The wood for Karelia floors is sourced from well-managed forests. Most of the material used for Karelia hardwood floors -- such as birch, oak and ash -- grows in Northern and Central Europe: areas where the number of trees growing exceeds the number of trees that are felled.
Through all times, the people of the North have held the forest and its gifts in high esteem. Finnish folklore has always been intertwined with nature, and the art of treating wood is a tradition honoured to this day. The Karelia brand stands for uncompromising quality, professionalism and responsible care for nature and the forest. True to the principles of its founders, the company manufactures Finnish hardwood floors with pride.
Karelia hardwood floors are made of real wood. Each floor is an individual work of art with its own personality, telling its own unique story. Your home deserves quality you can rely on.
Forests have always been highly respected in Finland. This respect is also reflected in the methods of Karelia. All our work is guided by strict adherence to our certifications, the ISO 14001 international environmental standard and the ISO 9001 quality standard. This ensures that every Karelia hardwood floor is produced with the utmost respect for nature and meets the highest quality standards.
We source our wood from well-managed forests meeting the EU Timber Regulation. Most of the wood we source is oak, ash, beech and birch that grow in the local region Northern and Central Europe. These are areas where the number of trees replanted exceeds the number of trees harvested.
