Mango Wood - Isn't that a fruit?

What is Mango Wood?

Mango wood comes from the heartwood of the tree, which is the hard, dense center of the trunk. It is said that Mango trees can grow to an age of 1000 years old.

Mango wood is categorised as a hardwood, due to its dense grains. This means it is a strong and durable wood making it perfect for furniture. Due to the density of the wood, it doesn’t wear out easily and can keep its high lustre texture for many years. However, unlike other hardwood furniture, Mango wood is often seen as more affordable and sustainable.
Mango wood is used in the production of many pieces of furniture including Dining tables, dining chairs, wardrobes, coffee tables and various other pieces of wooden furniture in homes around the world.

Where is Mango Wood From?

Although it can be grown in different parts of the world, Mango trees are best grown in East Asia. This is due to the fact they need high temperatures in order to grow well. Mango Wood is harvested when the tree has reached maturity and has fallen over naturally. Mango wood is prized for its beautiful grain that is often described as "flowing". It can vary in colour from a pale yellow to a rich dark orange. The wood itself is very dense, making it very hard and durable. It also has a high natural oil content which makes it self-sealing, weather resistant and anti-fungal.
