Kirei Board is a beautiful, sustainable creation manufactured from reclaimed agricultural fiber from the Sorghum plant grown around the world for food. The stalks of this plant are usually burned or thrown into landfills after harvest. The stalks left over after harvest are heat-pressed with a non-toxic adhesive to form lightweight, strong, unique Kirei Board.
By using them in the production this material is removed from the waste stream, reducing landfill need and air pollution, while giving rural farmers a new source of revenue from a previously unused waste material. Kirei panels are used throughout the Urban Woods furniture collections and utilized in many custom applications by Urban Woods. The Trousdale Collection features Kirei Board accents and panels together with reclaimed Douglas Fir creating a perfect blend of sustainable materials.
