"Why haven't I heard of Caribbean Heart Pine
Caribbean Heart Pine contains the highest percentage of heartwood found in any new heart pine except for actual old growth, which is very hard to find and very expensive. Furthermore, it can be antiqued very easily, meaning it can be made to look very old. If you put a few bolt holes in it most would consider it antique reclaimed heart pine. In short, the reason you haven’t heard of Caribbean Heart Pine is that very few people have incentive to explain what it is, where it comes from etc., when they can call it something you have heard of while charging you three times the price.
Our rustic grade of Caribbean Heart Pine has more of its heartwood derived from sap and thus has more color variations and those gorgeous knots. These floors have skyrocketed in popularity over the past couple of years and we look for that trend to continue as the natural and rustic are about real wood, not plastics meant for landfill.
