The name of our company Ceiba is derived from the title of the gigantic tropical tree
Ceiba grows mainly in the tropical rain forests, as well as in the dry tropical forests in Mexico,
in Mesoamerica and in South America. It can also be found in Peru, Bolivia, Brazil and even
in West Africa.
The Genus of Ceiba includes 10 species of the big tropical trees of the family Bombacaceae,
including “baobab”, the tree of Africa. It is the Ceiba tree, however, that is really the giant.
Ceiba is among the biggest trees found in tropical forests, and the biggest grow up to 60
meters. The characteristic of this tree is a big treetop, which creates an “umbrella” over
the others trees and provides protection for many species of smaller plants and animals.
The tree has a high column robust trunk and even more robust roots for its stability.
Already people from ancient world believed that the tree of Ceiba had been standing
in the middle of the world and had connected the earth-life with the ethereal world.
The long strong voluble plants hanging from its robust treetop would have connected
the real world with the world of souls that had lived above the tree. Even nowadays, when
lots of trees are cleared because of new fields, the trees of Ceiba still stand towering over
the new grassland and fields as a memory of the wide and lively forests which had been
standing there before.
When we were searching for a name of our company, we have found inspiration in an
organization called the Ceiba Foundation for Tropical Conservation.
This organization works to rescue and rehabilitate the tropical localities and save their biota.
The aim of this organization is the conservation and monitoring of the ecosystem.
It also teaches applied environmentalism and organizes seminars about how people have
been changing the ecosystem by obtaining new agricultural localities.
The activities of this organization have inspired us to carry out similar activities although
in the a different area.
Our aim is to help you with the preservation, repair, restoration and conservation of our
culture heritage. Each book or document is very important for each nation as a testament
of its existence, intelligence and cultural maturity.
Our company Ceiba s.r.o. has been established as a wholesaler and retailer of materials
and equipment for libraries, archives, museums, conservators, bookbinders and others
institutions that deal with the treatment, archiving and restoring of paper or books.

the robust trunk and strong roots to be the stable partner for you.
