Probably the best substitute for European boxwood being pale yellow brown, very fine textured and wonderful to work. Castello boxwood has been a staple for inlay work for centuries and is also a staple wood in the making of traditional archery bows.
Castello boxwood is CITES listed and requires special licences for export. We regret that for practical reasons we are not able to supply this item outside the UK.
