This wood bowl is handcrafted from mango wood by artisans from small communities and local villages in Southeast Asia. Their labor provides sustenance for their lives and families and the commercialization of their handicrafts gives them an opportunity to educate the next generation of artisans. Due to the handcrafted nature of each dish, natural differences are to be expected and no two items are exactly alike.
Mango wood is a hard wood and provides a secure and durable surface. It also boasts a beautiful grain making it the perfect center piece for fruit or decorative objects.
On a green note, Mango Wood is collected from the trees on mango plantations that naturally, after 15-30 years, stop producing fruit. When cut down, a new tree is immediately planted in its place to continue the cycle. Due to this natural process of harvesting for replanting, mango wood is a fully sustainable resource.
