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.
