East Indian Rosewood is a rare wood. In fact, its tree grows slowly and the lumber trade from wild harvested rosewood ceased nearly a hundred years ago. East Indian Rosewood grows primarily in the South of Asia, especially in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia. It requires a damp climate, and for this reason it enjoys the tropical monsoon forests. Such area is very wide, so the trees grow with many variations in the colouration and grain structure.

The color can vary from golden brown to a deep purplish brown, with darker brown streaks. It usually becomes darker the more the tree ages, reaching a deep brown color. Moreover, when exposed to the light, it tends to brighten considerably. When being worked, it smells like roses.

East Indian Rosewood is used in architectural woodwork applications, fine furniture, Interior Design panels, decorative wood products and musical instruments.
