We love mango wood for many reasons, from how it is a sustainable material due to its purpose for food cultivation. On top of that, it is versatile and can be used to make many types of items such as furniture, tables, jewellery box chests, decorative ornaments such as photo frames, mirrors, musical instruments, chopping boards, armchairs, fruit bowls, accessories, and more. Most of our mango wood is sourced from India because they have the perfect weather for growing mangos but also because we strive to fight poverty and offer our suppliers a fair wage for their handicraft. The eco-friendly natural wood grain is beautiful to look at and it is a high quality hardwood. Many of our smaller products are made using off cuts. Yellow staining is common as a result of ‘spalting’ - the effect is desired by artisan woodworkers as it gives contrasting streaks that can give the wood grain hints of yellow, green, beige and black tones.
