Decorative Mango Wood Branch Slices Hanging Heart
Handmade mango wood heart-shaped hanging, solid wood on the back, and decorative small branch slices on front
Mango trees mature relatively quickly compared to most trees so are an excellent source of sustainable wood. This mango wood hanger comes from mango farmers who sell it off in order to make extra money to secure their future. This great use of the branches, and parts of the tree that would not be used ordinarily, allows the farmers an extra source of income when times are tough, and we love it!
This product is made by slicing up the smaller branches and twigs that would normally not be given a second life. They add an earthy natural feel to the plain wood underneath. The unique patterning of mosaic wooden tiles creates an aesthetic individual to each piece so you can guarantee yours is special and the effect it gives is just stunning.
Approximate size: 9x9.5x2.5cm (plus string to hang)
