Skapari Materials

Skarpari - The materials we use

The materials we use come from so many places it would be hard to catalog them all

The materials we use have come from the forests, old metal piles, cast-offs, antique collections, and from artist’s workshops. Friends, customers, and other makers send us wood and steel, and other custom materials from all over the world. We have clients who are arborists who save all of the “weird wood” they find. We have friends who are scrap metal collectors that bring us everything usable for blades. We are blessed to live in a small community where people care about the environment and reusing materials. We are incredibly mindful of the materials we use, the waste the process creates, and how we deal with that. We live in a beautiful natural environment that we know needs to be preserved.
