Mauricio…Martin & MacArthur is a large company in Hawai’i that started in furniture (mainly Koa & Monkey Pod) but has branched out to smaller items in the last few years- watches, pendants, lamps etc…..I have been told that one of the reasons for Koa getting so scarce is their use of what used to be considered off cuts for smaller items. Not sure what percentage of Koa lumber they use, but they do make tons of items from it…..like a lot of stuff labeled “Made in Hawai’i” their stuff is really expensive…..Thanks for posting the Etsy link, though….anything wood is good….....Wes
