With a sink made of petrified wood, you bring a unique piece of history that is millions of years old into your home. Petrified wood or fossil wood is created because trees and often even entire forests are buried under the earth during a landslide after extreme rain. Or they are completely covered by the ash that is released during a large volcanic eruption. Because oxygen can no longer reach these trees afterwards, the decay process takes place in a few million years. The groundwater that drips through the earth or ash takes along minerals that are deposited in the cells of the trees. These minerals replace the tree cells when they eventually rot away after millions of years, after which the wood is petrified. The fossilized wood we use comes from the species dipterocarpus which is a deciduous tree that still exists today and often occurs in tropical forests in Asia. The fossilized wood we use is about 20 million years old.

To keep your washbasin good, it is necessary to impregnate it several times (3 to 4 times) a year. This prevents water and dirt from entering your washbasin. It is also recommended to impregnate the washbasin before use. This will not take much time but will ensure that your washbasin will last for a long time. You can use any suitable impregnating agent for natural stone.
- Make sure the wash bowl is completely dry before you start.
- Rub the impregnating agent on the wash basin with a soft cloth and let it dry.
- Then wipe off the excess impregnating agent with a soft cloth until the wash bowl starts to shine again.
