AHMEDADBAD, India -- Canada Wood Group (CWG), in partnership with Bramola, a Delhi-based manufacturer, showcased high-end furniture made with western hemlock and other Canadian wood species at IndiaWood 2020 held in March.

Bramola worked with local artisans to embellish individual pieces of the showcased furniture with carvings and colorful paintings. The IndiaWood display included a sofa, console, chests of drawers and side tables. According to CWG, hemlock was used as a substitute for teak and other traditional hardwoods that Bramola normally uses for its furniture. The western hemlock is certified as being harvested from sustainably managed forests.


For more than five years, Forest Innovation Investments India Pvt Ltd (FII India), the British Columbia government’s market development agency for forest products in India, has created awareness in the country about Canadian wood. In addititon to India, CWG  helps Canadian wood products manufacturers diversify and expand export opportunities for their products in traditional and emerging overseas markets, including Europe, Japan, China and South Korea.
