Whitewood usually refers to wood that comes from the tulip tree and has colloquial names such as the American tulip tree, tulip poplar, fiddle-tree, or yellow poplar. Also known as liriodendron tulipifera, real Whitewood can be identified by its creamy white colour.
Whitewood is a type of very soft creamy white wood, with ideal grain for carving. This is excellent for enhancing shapes because its colour intensifies light to dark contrasts. Whitewood makes the number one choice when quality and durability are taken into consideration. Although decorating one’s home with wood carvings and craft dates back to the period of the Indus Valley Civilization, it is just as relevant today.
