Crafted from sustainably and locally grown Macrocarpa, this board was designed and made by The Paper Rain Project in Marlborough, New Zealand.
This board is a wall-hanging artwork and comes equipped with a fitting suitable for a standard picture hook or nail.
For each sustainably-grown tree felled, an average of 200 native trees are planted in it’s place. Thank you for helping to regenerate native forests in New Zealand.
Since their inception, skateboards have always been a canvas for creativity and expression. Paper Rain art boards are just for wall hanging and we believe that their retro skateboard shape helps to create a unique, accessible art form for the home. We also absolutely love working with timber, a natural material that has a whole story and life of its own. The macrocarpa we use to craft our boards is grown just 30km away from our workshop, on a small wood lot. Paul, the grower, is passionate about sustainability and replacing heavily treated pine timbers with more sustainable alternatives grown in a way better suited to the environment.
Every one of our boards is crafted by Paper Rain co-founder, Wills, here in Marlborough. Made solely from timber with a plant-based finish, our series of artworks is laser etched into the wood. Like our t-shirts, our boards sport a range of artworks by Kiwi artists. For each board sold, a native tree is planted here in Marlborough by Trees That Count.
Summer 2015 brought about the first collaboration between The Paper Rain Project & the young / super talented hand behind Illustrate which saw extremely detailed wild animals adorning our boards. Inspired by a trip to India and the pattern-making in that culture, Toby Brunsdon set about making Zen-like creations within his animal illustrations.
Although Toby is on the opposite side of the Globe, his designs are finding themselves etched into macrocarpa, blackwood and french oak surfaces of our boards & are now taking residence across the Globe with travellers & buyers Worldwide.
