There are, here and there, around the world occasional plantation grown Cuban specie mahogany trees. They are scarce and sought after. This stock is from India and the traditional qualities are there almost like the real thing.
From 2nd January 2017 if you wish to export articles that are partly or fully made from newly listed species of Rosewood, Padauk and Bubinga then the export will need to be accompanied by a CITES re-export permit. It is possible that the importer/customer of the article may need to apply for a CITES import permit from their own authorities and this should be investigated before the export happens.
