Originating from Thailand, this hand-carved wooden vase is more than a decorative piece—it embodies a rich cultural heritage. By supporting fair trade, you not only bring a piece of art into your home but also contribute to the well-being of the artisans and their communities.
The vase is meticulously carved from mango wood, a sustainable material known for its durability and unique grain patterns. The mesmerizing twist-wave design reflects the skilled hands of Thai artisans who have mastered the art of woodworking.
Mango wood stands out as an exceptionally sustainable choice, thanks to its cultivation as a fruit tree. Unlike many hardwoods, mango trees reach maturity relatively swiftly, typically within 15 years. Once they reach this stage, their fruit production declines, or in some cases, stops altogether. Adopting an eco-friendly approach, mango farmers replant new trees every 7 to 15 years, ensuring a continuous and sustainable cycle of plantation and harvest. This thoughtful practice involves only harvesting the less productive trees for wood, maintaining a balance between environmental conservation and resource utilization.
