Mpingo is the Kiswahili word for the dark hardwood also known as African black wood or Mozambican ebony and grows prolifically in Mozambique’s forests. Crafted from sustainably sourced Mpingo wood by artisans living in Mozambique’s vast woodlands, these ebony pieces are both useful and beautiful. Differences in tone and slight imperfections confirm the authenticity of materials and craftsmanship of every piece.
