A substitute rosewood of great beauty, red brown to deep purple brown, fine textured and beautifully marked, showing much of the character of the best rosewoods and superb for cabinet work. Santos rosewood can cause a skin allergy.
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.
