This table top Easel is exactly the same as the ‘Racine’ model by Richeson (made at the same factory without the “Richeson” name). It’s made of Lyptus wood, a sustainable, premium-grade Eucalyptus hardwood grown on eco-friendly plantations in South America. Lyptus wood matures in 14–16 years (other hardwoods take up to 60 years). Lyptus trees sprout from the stump of previously harvested trees, so the forest is always renewing itself! The wood is harder than oak, enabling easels made of Lyptus to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.
