Mango Wood Care Instructions

HAND CRAFTING IN HARDWOOD


Mango trees produce a hardwood that is becoming increasingly popular for use in furniture products due to its sustainability as a bi-product from the fruit industry. Trees can grow up to 100ft tall and as much as 5ft in diameter but have a limited fruit bearing life. The wood is dense timber, which provides a beautiful grain made up from different tones and colours from dark or light green through to brown and tan shades.


Although mango is naturally durable and long-lasting, it is methodically kiln-dried and treated before production begins to ensure the future stability of the timber.
Mango wood is coarse in texture and it can vary in colour from light or golden brown to dark brown within the same piece. The wood texture and grain can sometimes be coarse to the touch but is because it is a solid natural wood not a defect.


Mango wood has a unique pattern with knots and varying grain which are enhanced by the final stain colour or finish effect applied to the furniture piece.

As every piece is hand finished from an entirely natural product. Variations in knots, grain detailing, mineral deposits and minor imperfections can sometimes occur. These are considered part of the uniqueness and charm of mango furniture.


BEAUTIFUL WOOD LASTS A LIFETIME

  • As the furniture has a hand-waxed finish, it is not resistant to heat or liquid. We advise you protect the surface from hot or wet items with coasters and mats.
  • We recommend waxing the wood with high quality clear beeswax once or twice a year, more frequently for high-use areas. Once applied, remove any excess wax and buff to a shine with a lint-free cloth.

• On unpainted surfaces, should you in use make ring marks these can easily be removed with clear furniture wax and fine-grade wire wool
• Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight as this can affect the appearance. Also avoid above-average temperatures or extreme changes in temperature. Central heating and under-floor heating can dry out the atmosphere which can cause wood movement.
