Whimsical seated zebra rests on the edge of your shelf or table. Hand-carved from fast-growing neem wood and painted black on natural. Neem is a drought-resistant softwood grown on sustainable farms in Kenya’s coastal areas. Carvers have developed new and better ways of working with softwoods, in order to preserve forests of longstanding hardwood trees. In addition to wood for carving, neem is used in products for skin care, cosmetics, medicines and insect repellants.
