Lately at Papa Kai, we've been getting emails from all over the place (New York, New Zealand, San Francisco, Italy, Ireland, and more) asking where to buy Paulownia wood.  We do a good job of covering the Hawai'i area, and as much as we'd like to help out other regions with their Paulownia needs, it's just too expensive for our customers to have to pay for the wood and shipping (excluding California most times).  So to help everyone out, we're trying to create the best list we can of places around the world that sell Paulownia wood.  

So far we only have about one place per coast that we've tackled, but if any of you discover a new location, let us know and we'll post it on our directory at,

We were lucky enough to hook up with a great supplier but it didn't happen right away.  It took a good month or two of searching before we had any luck.  Hopefully, this will make it easier for all of you.
