We built our reputation as North America’s artisan floor specialists by learning everything there was to know about wood
Every CRAFT floor starts with an engineered core of Canadian structural grade Spruce. Our Spruce is considered to be a highly valued renewable resource since it is harvested from responsibly managed Canadian forests where emphasis is placed on environmentally supportive forestry practices with emphasis towards a sustainable future. CRAFT is unique in that the core of every floor has been third-party certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® to be legal, responsible and sustainable. CRAFT is also proud to be an Associate Member of BC Wood Specialties Group and to support the wood products industry in British Columbia.

HARDWORKING FLOORS FOR BUSY ROOMS: MEET HICKORY
Homes contain lively living spaces, and naturally strong resilient Hickory floors stand up to daily life. CRAFT homeowners love Hickory, making it our most popular hardwood.
From a craftsman perspective, Hickory is one of the most challenging North American wood species to work with. Seasonal availability, extreme hardness and considerable variability in grain pattern are just a few of the reasons most manufacturers don’t pay much attention to hickory, or stay away from it all together. However, despite these challenges, our craftsmen have developed a deep love and appreciation for Hickory. Its beautiful tight grain and myriad of dramatic and flowing grain patterns, make for a truly unique real wood floor. CRAFT's Hickory is third-party verified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® to be from legal and responsible sources.
