Frames are made from Rubberwood (Parawood).
Commonly known as the rubber tree or Para rubber tree, it is native to
the Amazon Region of South America. Rubberwood produces the latex used
in rubber-based products. After the economic life of the rubber tree,
which is generally 26-30 years, the latex yields become extremely low
and the planters then fell the rubber trees and plant new ones. So,
unlike other woods that are cut down for the sole purpose of producing
furniture, Rubberwood is used only after it completes its
latex-producing cycle and dies. Rubberwood wood is eco-friendly since
the wood would otherwise go to waste.
