Black oak extracted from the river bed in Gauja is a truly unique find. It is a very ancient material that has become very hard and durable over time. These properties make black oak a valuable material for creating various arts and crafts.
Gauja is the longest river in Latvia, and its historical depths are famous for the fact that various ancient and preserved materials can be found in them. Black oak could be between 500 and 1000 years old.
