Yes new. I bought some from them a couple years ago. The price at the time was $100/pr. I thought they were vintage 70s maybe but then I got a Christmas card from them this year with link to their web site. A great deal even at $135/pr.

The other current mfg of wood rims is of course the more well known Cerchio in Legno Ghisallo. They are twice the price so those CBITA are a great deal. They also make them in any drilling, and in several shapes and in four colors. Here are some I built up awhile back for a Cinelli track bike: I have several sets on bikes too including two sets in 32/40. They build up very nice and ride wonderfully. They are made from Slovenian beechwood, whereas the CBITA are hickory. Not sure if it makes a difference. I like the colours of the Ghisallo better though.
