Nkuku Nalbari Chopping Board – Medium
These long, rectangular, Nalbari Chopping Boards are striking and practical. Skilfully pieced together from segments of sustainable mango wood, the natural colour variations create an interesting and texture rich patchwork. Use them as a chopping board or sharing platter for informal delights from antipasti to artisan breads.
Mango wood is strong, dense and durable and does not wear easily, meaning its high luster texture is maintained for many years. To care for your Mango Wood item, wash in warm soapy water after every use to prevent staining, rinse and dry immediately, do not soak. Due to the nature of the wood, the colours may change over time. To nourish and protect the natural wood rub an edible oil such as olive oil or walnut oil into the surface with a dry cloth. Please note that adding oil may darken the tone of the wood.
Why We Love Nkuku
Founded on the back of a life-changing adventure, Nkuku was created by Ali & Alex Cooke after a year-long round the world trip. From the outset they were humbled by the talented craftspeople and their beautiful work, so inspired in fact that upon their return they decided to move from the city of London to rural Devon. They began working with artisans from around the world, supporting and celebrating their skills by bringing their products to a wider audience.
The name Nkuku comes from a village in Zambia, the place where the Cooke’s wrote their business plan on the cover of a paperback book. That was the inspiration for their first product, the stylish leather journals they still sell today. Although Nkuku has evolved since it was founded in 2003, they still have the same hands-on approach, meeting and working with their artisan makers personally, this enables them to guarantee that every product has a story to tell.
We fell in love with the Nkuku brand when at a trade show back in 2019, their unique homewares caught our eye instantly, never had we seen such unique, quality products. You really can see the diversity in their products, whether it’s a handwoven throw or an industrial dinning table, their products ooze culture. Nkuku makes it simple to add visual interest and adventurous culture to your home. One of the main reasons we are proud to stock the Nkuku brand is the fact that all of their products are ethically made, eco-friendly and hand-made. Nkuku’s approach to design fit’s seamlessly?with our own ethos, they use materials that will stand the test of time, shapes, textures and patterns that will stay relevant across seasons. Ultimately, Nkuku wish to offer items you will cherish for years to come, eliminating the ?fast-fashion? approach to homewares.
