Komodoty is devoted to joining sustainable materials with advanced technology. We take pride in our environmental awareness and allow our products to reflect this.
Our FSC certified wood is sourced from all over the globe with an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Every time you buy a product we plant a tree, so you can enjoy a beautiful case that does not rob the planet, rather gives back.
Walnut (Juglans nigra) is possibly one of the most widely used woods in the world. It varies in colour from light brown to dark rich chocolate. Prized for its strength, grain and colour, it also polishes to a beautifully smooth finish. Grain is typically straight. Figured grain patterns such as curl, crotch, and burl are also seen.

Rosewood (Dalbergia spruceana) boasts deep reddish brown colours with darker contrasting streaks. It is highly durable and has a uniform texture with open pores.

Bamboo, technically not a wood, is part of the Poaceae (grass) family. Unlike trees bamboo grows at full width, with no horizontal tapering. Some can even grow up to three feet a day! The texture is extremely uniform and displays a pale yellow colour.

Mahogany (Myroxylon balsamum)
has beautiful reddish brown colours. The grain is interlocked with a medium to fine texture. Our cases often show extraordinary patterns that can be striped or ribboned. The colour tends to turn more red/purple with age.

(Pterocarpus santalinus) Perhaps better known for its use in cosmetics and medicine. We think it makes for a great phone accessory. Heartwood ranges from a dark orange to a deeper reddish purple, often with darker streaks throughout. Colours tend to darken significantly over time to deep reddish purple to nearly black.

Zebrawood (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) offers a striking pattern, akin to a zebra. The light brown/creamy colours contrast the dark blackish brown streaks to provide a visually stunning piece. Zebrawood is considered a luxury hardwood.

Unlike most other hardwoods, the sapwood of hard maple (Acer saccharum) lumber is most commonly used rather than its heartwood. Sapwood colour ranges from nearly white, to an off-white cream colour, sometimes with a reddish or golden hue.
