- Vintage Mango Wood & Iron: This type of wood is really sustainable because it’s a byproduct of an already thriving industry: mango fruit. The trees grow on a large scale in India and they mature quickly: in 15 years instead of for instance oaks (50-100 years).
The fruit production is good in the first period of the tree. As it grows older, fruit production also decreases. That is why this tree is economically less valuable on the mango plantations. The solution for mango farmers is then: cut down and replant. Because of this way of working, the wood of the mango tree is really sustainable. Forest is not just cut down. After his life as a food producer, the wood gets a second life as a piece of furniture.
- The reclaimed wood to make them may slightly vary in colour which makes every single one of them unique in its own way
The base of mango wood has a warm color, but due to the color variations in the wood there may be deviations. It gives every piece of furniture a robust and unique appearance. The wood has some sawcut markings which add a vintage twist.
The mango wood is sanded and have been given a sealer coating for the protection of water stains. The coating gives a natural look to the wood, instead of making the color dark or yellowish we kept it as original as possible. The iron parts on the items are powder coated in a gun-metal finish.
