Nkuku's stylish long chopping boards are handmade from sustainable mango wood. Their long rectangular shape means they look great along the centre of a table. The perfect serving platter, use them for cheese, antipasti and other culinary treats. The mango wood Nkuku uses in all of it's products is sustainable. Mango trees are initially grown for their fruit but once the trees reach a certain size and age, they stop bearing fruit. It is then that the trees can be cut down and used to create wood products. The removal of the old trees makes space for farmers to plant new mango trees. This not only means that none of the wood is wasted but offers a supplementary income to mango wood farmers. Mango wood is a hard wood that comes in many shades from light to dark. To care for your mango wood product, wash in warm soapy water, then rinse and dry immediately. To nourish and protect the natural wood, rub an edible oil (such as olive oil or walnut oil) into the surface with a cloth. Nkuku, based in Devon, the United Kingdom, creates beautifully handmade home and lifestyle products. They work with artisans throughout the world, combining timeless design with traditional skills and natural materials. One of Nkuku's key focuses is on fair trade, and they adhere to the globally accepted '10 Principles of Fair Trade'. They believe that trading fairly provides the artisans they work with an opportunity to build a future, and helps businesses develop while also creating sustainable employment. Along with their focus on fair trade, Nkuku has a strong eco-friendly ethos as they work with natural and recycled materials through sustainable methods of production, which in turn shapes their collections. All of Nkuku's items are handmade, which highlights the traditional skills used by their artisans that have been handed down from generation to generation.
