Chestnut is a precious and resistant wood, characterized by natural knots and dense veins that make this product unique.
The realization of the chest takes place following all the drying, seasoning and selection phases of the best boards, enriched with veins and knots typical of the chestnut.
After a detailed study of the design, the carving is rigorously handmade, finishing and enhancing the product with natural waxes.
A long process that encompasses all the techniques acquired in more than 40 years of experience.
The art of carving is one of the oldest and most developed in Sardinia and is characterized by the great versatility of the techniques used.
The element that best represents the art of carving is the Sardinian chest, the so-called "cascia", mentioned in some documents of the fifteenth century as "cascia Sardesca".
