Kobi by Reclaimed DesignWorks features charred cypress burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban. Kobi is recommended for interior wall cladding – please call to discuss exterior applications. Kobi is available in select grade or #2 common grade cypress. The higher the grade, the better it is felt the wood will perform.
ATTRIBUTES OF KOBI
Kobi is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed and then stained/sealed. The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing the back side as well as the face). The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.
