Did you know that the mango tree originated in India over 4000 years ago? Known as the national and sacred fruit of India, the mango symbolizes prosperity and good luck.

Sustainably Sourced

Wood from the mango tree is only harvested once it no longer bears fruit. Mango wood's beautiful natural grain, durability, and easy-to-carve nature make it an ideal choice to create home products. Large pieces can be used to create furniture, and flooring, while smaller pieces and remnants are saved for products such as home decor and accents.

Sustainable Work

The abundance of mango wood presents artisans with the opportunity for steady employment. Working in a fair trade environment means artisans are not subjected to harsh chemicals that are hazardous to people and the planet. Artisans earning a fair and dignified wage can support their families and work towards breaking the cycle of poverty.

Sustainable Material

Conventionally produced products oftentimes require an enormous amount of our planet's natural resources. Mango wood is a natural material that is a by-product of the mango fruit. Utilizing this wood, instead of discarding it helps to keep the environmental footprint to a minimum.
