With the goal of environmental sustainability, Furch Guitars has struck a deal with Panamanian indigenous community Arimae to replenish the exotic woods used annually in the company’s production line.

Under the agreement, the Czech brand will provide financial assistance to Arimae for the care of six hectares of exotic woods, corresponding to the brand’s annual production needs. This comprises four hectares of cocobolo (dalbergia retusa) and two hectares of mahogany (swietenia macrophylla).
