This sandalwood box is hand-carved from a single section of log, and incorporates both the rough bark and beautiful inner marbling of the sandalwood tree.
A polished elephant pull adds function and character. Though undetectable from the pictures, the box smells richly of sandalwood.
Fair trade from Mozambique. Measures 4.5"L x 4"W x 2"T. Pictured on our Indigo Mudcloth Runner.
