Nkuku Bwari Long Marble Board
This large mango wood board is entirely handmade in India. Mango wood is raw, untreated and unvarnished. Nkuku always favors sustainable or recycled materials. It is in this approach that the mango wood was selected for the realization of this board. Similarly, the link to hang the board is recycled leather. Mango trees are initially grown for their fruit, but once the rate of production declines, the trees are cut and used to create objects. The sale of these trees allows farmers to maximize the yield of their plantation, providing them with additional income and allowing them to plant and plant new trees.
We advise you to oil it before the first use with vegetable oil (do not look too far, that of your kitchen cupboard will do). The most recommended is rapeseed oil because it does not rancid. By oiling, the board will darken, which will give it a look a little old. To feed and protect your board, you can repeat the operation from time to time. Be careful, she will skate with time! The grain of the wood can, during use, change and become slightly rough. In this case, you can gently sand your board with a soft grain paper, it will resume its softness and its initial smooth appearance. Each piece is unique, the color (the mango wood can be more or less clear, with shades of gray-yellow) and the structure of the board (according to the veins of the wood) can vary.
