   Handmade by a limited number of local, skilled and experienced Fair Trade artisans to an exceptionally precise finish.
And remember, due to the natural grains, no two items are ever alike, making each piece special.

  Lemon juice and vegetable oil are polished into the wood, revealing Thuya’s natural burled grain. Each piece is rubbed by hand for hours. You can actually smell the aroma from this process when opening your box. In fact, oil from the Thuya tree is extracted and is used in aromatherapy.

  So not only will your box look visually stunning, it will smell wonderful too.

  Finished-off with a hand-rubbed shellac type varnish coating and buffed.

DIMENSIONS – width 12 cm x height 4.2 cm x depth 8 cm approximately.

Did you know?
Thuya is a rare, shrubby conifer, indigenous to southern Morocco and especially the town of Essaouira, in the foothills of the Atlas mountains. It is part of the cedar family.

Family income is generated either by fishing, or the sale of Thuya wood products, like this one.

Main characteristics of the wood are a high oil content and stunning burls, which come from the root of the tree – similar to that found as walnut burl.
Trees are typically 70 years old before they are cut. This rare conifer tree is harvested not by its trunk or branches, but from the actual roots and new growth.
The Thuya tree is one of few that re-grows after being cut down to the trunk. This maintains sustainability and is supported by a vigorous re-planting program.

Take care:  keep away from water.
Remove dust by dipping a soft, clean cloth in warm soapy water, wring it out until slightly damp and then wipe the wood with the cloth.
Afterwards, get another soft, clean cloth and dry the wood.

And discover more about Thuya wood from Morocco in my Blog post.

Also note: I take care to ensure that pictures and descriptions are as accurate and representative as possible, but please be aware that these products are handmade in the developing world (often using locally-sourced and / or recycled materials) and minor variations may occur – making each item truly unique!
