A West African species, Koto has a grain pattern similar to many exotic Mahoganies, but is distinctly lighter in tone than many others, being white to pale yellow in color. The example shown here is a natural veneer that has been skillfully dyed.
Our dyed veneers offer color consistency in a variety of hues, intensity, and values in combination with the natural wood grain, creating beautiful and unique options in design.
The dye process will take regular wood veneers: pressure bleached, then pressure dyed with a custom color dye. The entire thickness of the wood is dyed to guarantee uniform color. The veneers are then dried, reassembled and bundled for further processing. An advantage of dyed veneers is that it eliminates the labor of staining and color matching, and repairs are easily done with sanding and touch-ups. If the color you are seeking is not presented, pending the scope of the project, we can color match to your sample.
