The recognition of Ipe is not only due to the exuberance of its beauty and the thickness of its bark - in the indian language Tupi, ipê means "thick bark tree". Resistant to urban pollution, the tree provides a beautiful decorative effect in cities. Ipê is a tree very well-known for its beautiful flowers that can be white, purple, yellow or pink. Its wood is very hard, the hardest that I have worked with and which allows the manufacture of unique jewels.
