The smooth, natural forms of Nkuku’s Himba Candlesticks are carved by hand from sustainable mango wood. They include a metal candle holder.
Nkuku’s mango wood pieces are created from sustainable mango wood. The mango trees are initially grown for their fruit, harvested over a number of years. Once the trees have stopped bearing fruit, they can be cut down and used to make Nkuku’s wooden pieces. This allows farmers to plant more trees and provides them with a supplementary income.
We also stock these candlesticks in a large size.
