The wood specie Koto belongs to the family of Malvaceae and comes from the Tropical regions of West Africa, South America and South-East Asia. It can reach a growth height of up to 50 m and a trunk diameter of 1,4 m. The wood species Koto became known a bit by the marketing under the name Anatolia, where the sawn timber was steamed and thus received a continuously yellowish brown (oak-like) tint. The veneer of the Kotos is used in the production of ceiling and wall panelling, furniture and doors.
