All hangers from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project are made from responsibly-sourced woods. The U.S.A. Maple Wood used with our naturally-finished hangers is purchase directly from Weyerhaeuser, who harvests under environmentally responsible and sustainable practices. We then ship our wood to our own manufacturing facilities. Most other manufacturers source their woods directly from China to cut costs. Although these woods are acceptable for ordinary hangers, we feel that it is not appropriate for the luxury hangers that we craft.
