An Italian family migrated to Peru to make what is now known as Beltempo Outdoor Furniture. Making furniture in Peru was a choice to select fine woods from the rainforest while ensuring its continuation through smart harvesting. By providing jobs and a use for Amazon trees, perhaps they can slow the rate at which the rainforest is cut down. Their philosophy is that if you build a product to last 50 years, natural resources are depleted at a slower rate. Cumaru is the tree that matures in 30-40 years and offers a lifetime of weather resilience due to its Amazon rainforest roots. Beltempo is a member of the “Global Forest Trade Network” of the WWF which traces the source of any lumber.
