Nkuku combines contemporary designs with age-old techniques, natural materials and sustainable methods of production to ensure each product is truly exceptional. Mango wood is a sustainable wood. 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. None of the wood is wasted and the sale of the wood offers supplementary income to mango farmers.
