What is Suar Wood?
These beautifully crafted figures are skilfully carved from Suar wood. It is also sometimes known as Monkey Pod wood.
A monkey pod tree can grow to a giant 24 metres in height. However its impressive canopy often exceeds 30 metres in diameter and in some cases up to a magnificent 60 metres. Therefore, its gigantic proportions means that in tropical regions it serves as an excellent shade tree.
Suar Wood or Monkey Pod Wood has a medium to coarse texture. Therefore, this sustainable hardwood and its straight grain lend themselves well to the manufacturing process. Timber preparation is often a long and arduous process. For example, the wood is seasoned twice – firstly following harvesting and then again after carving. Next, the item is waxed by hand. This helps to protect the wood and highlight its natural radiance and variations in the grain.
The Fairtrade Lifestyle range of Suar Abstract Figures are hand carved by skilled artisans in Bali, Indonesia.
Part of the beauty of these lovely sculptures is that they’re carved by hand, so each piece is unique. Many are available in more than one size option and in light or dark finish.
