About

La Brière, 2nd biggest swamp of France after La Camargue

During the Bronze Age, about 5,000 years ago, in La Brière, a beautiful forest of oaks reigned in place of the current swamp. Geological upheavals, such as storms, have caused trees to fall. They were then swallowed up by the peat soil.
As the years passed, the trees, imprisoned in this natural sarcophagus, deprived of air and oxygen, began to fossilize.
This wood is called Morta

Atelier JHP manufactures "Morta knives" from carefully selected materials. 
These knife handles make these objects a wonderful souvenir of the Brière.
