Fair Trade sewing box with sliding drawers made from mango wood.
• The 3 individual drawers are suitable for many storage uses - jewellery, watches, trinkets etc.
• When the drawers are shut, the chest retracts into a basic rectangle shape. When they are open, the chest expands as shown in the main image.
• The 2 lids have intricately hand-carved elephant designs and are hinged. The 3rd drawer is much larger, forming the base of the box.
All drawers have an unlined, plain wood finish.
• Each wood piece is individually polished and waxed, creating a truly stunning piece for any home.
• Part of our range of sustainable mango wood gifts. (See below)
This wooden box has been handmade by skilled Fair Trade craftsmen in India.
Dimensions (when drawers are closed) - width 30 cm x depth 15 cm x height 12 cm approximately. The width when all drawers are fully expanded is 46 cm.
Did you know?
Mango trees are constantly re-planted to provide fruit and wood. When the tree becomes old the fruits are no longer suitable for commercial use and the wood is then harvested and replaced with young trees.
This harvested wood provides the mango farmers with an additional income.
Please note: jewellery items shown are not included. Wipe clean with a dry cloth. A wax polish can be used. Do not use a silicone spray cleaner.
