All our mango wood products are hand carved by WFTO accredited producers in India.
They are made entirely by hand using traditional skills handed down from generation to generation. Mango trees have an extremely long life but eventually do stop bearing fruit and are replaced by younger trees. As India produces, by far, the most mangos in the world this results in a massive industry using one of the most sustainable woods known to man.
Please note that due to the handmade nature of this product, designs and colours on the elephants may vary slightly from those shown in the image but loveliness comes as standard.
These products are expertly handcrafted by TARA Projects (Trade Alternative Reform Action), a World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) and founding Fair Trade Forum India member.
Established in the early 1970’s, they are dedicated to creating opportunities and support for economically disadvantaged home-based artisans and crafts people in Delhi. Over the years the project has extended its work into the adjoining states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Rajasthan.
The project provides services to enable the production and marketing of handicrafts following Fair Trade principles, as well as providing education and support to empower their grassroots artisans. The heart of their work is dedicated to eradicating poverty, by fighting against exploitation and illiteracy amongst their producers and working communities. They help to fund schools and empower women as part of their drive to support marginalised groups.
By making a purchase, you are helping to continue the fantastic work of our producers.
