Are you looking for a stunning piece of hand-crafted artwork as a Christmas gift? We've just gotten a huge shipment of intricately crafted ebony art pieces anyone will love. But before we get to the items themselves, what makes ebony so special?

The Quality of Ebony 

Ebony is a dense, black hardwood that has a smooth, lustrous finish. The ebony used for these carvings is from Tanzania. This wood is considered a luxury wood, and was often found in ancient Egyptian tombs because of its elegance and association with royalty. The black keys of pianos are often made from ebony wood as well. The wood is the hardest, most durable wood there is, which has made it a hot commodity for crafters of high-quality furniture and artwork. 

Is This Ebony Endangered? 

We care about preserving the hardwood trees in Africa that are endangered at this time. From what we can tell, Tanzanian ebony is not endangered, but ebony from Madagascar is. For this reason we are not importing any ebony from Madagascar.
