A great many of our wood products are hand made from sustainable mango wood.  The colour of mango wood varies from deep brown to an almost light blond. The natural grain adds depth and character to everyday products and this is one of the reasons why we love it so much.

The other enormous benefit of mango wood is its sustainability. The Mango trees are initially grown for their fruit, more than 30 million tons of mango fruit are grown each year, but once they have stopped producing they are cut down and replaced with new trees. This old wood can then be used to create wood products. This not only means that none of the wood is wasted but offers a supplementary income to mango fruit farmers.
