CITES Species Protection

Valued Swiss and international customers,
Since 22.12.2011 all states part of the CITES-Contract are obliged to follow extended restrictions concerning the trade of endangered wood-species such as Ebony from Madagascar, Cocobolo, Honduran Mahogany, Lignum vitae and other restricted materials such as ivory.
If you order from our shop and want shipping to a non-EU state, such as Switzerland, you as the buyer and importer are solely responsible for following the law concerning the import of protected wood species (including protected plant and animal parts) in your country. For example the CITES permissions provided with our ivory products are valid for EU Member states only. An import license can only be given by your national authorities.
On the Swiss BVET website you can obtain extensive information on the subject. In the following you will find links to the two sites concerning wood
In the right margin, on the second site, you can find further documents available for download. In particular the list of CITES-Woods (state 09.11.2011)

Upon non-observance, border customs - who is checking your import - might seize part of your parcel. Such procedures are always connected to troubles and costs for you, the importer.
Due to these laws, we advise our Swiss customers to not order any Cites protected wood species from us. Currently (Beginning 2012), those are Ebony, Cocobolo, Guaiacum (Lignum vitae) and Honduran Mahogany. Unfortunately, we cannot offer you any assistance concerning the import of these woods into Switzerland or other non EU-member states.. Within EU states the trade of these woods is possible without any restrictions. The export to Switzerland and other Non-EU-Countries constitutes an exceptional case, whose bureaucratic requirements are not to be fulfilled by us and are not part of our area of activity.
You can find detailed descriptions of the different wood-species here

We ask you to please follow the legal regulations, so that you are personally contributing to the worldwide protection of our flora and fauna, and hence the protection of the entire world from destruction of biotopes, animals and plants!
Secondary information on the Washington Species Protection Plan (CITES) can be found here

The German Ministry of
nature protection (BfN) also informs you on the subject on their site

 Thank you for observing the guidelines!
