Natural, 100% biodegradable, clean and long lasting. Our standard cut shredded wood excelsior fulfills a long list of projects. Although still used in the traditional wine & cheese, soap and produce gift baskets - it can also be used for window displays, craft projects and seasonal decorations. It's great for heavier items which need more support than paper shreds can provide. Since excelsior is a natural wood product, it can be dyed, tinted, or painted. You're limited only by your imagination. Made from non-toxic and non-allergenic Aspen wood fibers. Made in the USA.
