Help condition and preserve your bowl with mineral oil.
The beauty of woodcraft and function grow together in this one-of-a-kind bowl, fashioned from the trunk of a mango wood tree. The flowing organic shape, delicate grain, and the warm hues of its unaltered bark distinguish this dense, ecologically forested trunk-turned-bowl. After 15 to 30 years, mango trees naturally stop bearing fruit, but after it's harvested and hand-carved, this malleable wood takes on a new life as a stunning home accent. The rich, sweeping grain of this hollowed out trunk make it a natural spot for snacks like mixed nuts or decorative accents like painted pinecones or potpourri.
When each mango tree is cut down, the roots remain intact to encourage regrowth. A sapling is also immediately planted to replace the harvested tree and to continue the cycle. Due to this careful process of harvesting and replanting, mango wood (or acacia) is a fully sustainable resource. This striking bowl comes from ecologically sound plantations, where no more trees are cut down than is ecologically permissible. Handmade in Thailand.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
