Mango and teak are both beautiful hardwoods indigenous to India and are wonderful timber for furniture making. Each wood has its own identity and unique properties.
Handmade Indian wood furniture by nature are imperfect pieces that are carved, fitted and painted by hand, giving each piece an individual and slightly rustic charm. Slight imperfections are to be expected and are not considered defects. The design comes straight from the craftsmen, who use their skills and artistry to create unique designs to delight the future owner of the furniture.
We take high-resolution images of our premium quality furniture to faithfully reflect the products. We take our own photographs to show the furniture in as much detail as possible, and do our best to show the authentic colour and look of the furniture, making it easy to buy.
