Our Marrickville 220mm wide board is genuine French Oak.
One inherent difference of French Oak compared to American or Chinese Oaks, is that the tannin content is much higher in French Oaks. Tannin is a substance made from the polyphenolic compounds that are found in the wood. The high content of tannin means that our reactive stain technology is far more effective in achieving a subtle reaction with the wood resulting in different tones and colours that cannot be found in other oak.
With a micro bevelled edge and 10% matte UV lacquer, Marrickville Oak enhances any interior design, stretching across the spectrum from modern to natural traditional spaces.
