Wood Box - Large

$79.00 CAD

These striking wood boxes were hand-carved by skilled artisans in the port city of Essaouira.  Made from thuya wood, each piece is unique.  They feature a hinged back, and are both decorative and functional.  Measures approximately 7.75” wide x 4.75”deep x 2.25” high. 

Thuya wood is a rare wood that comes from coniferous trees indigenous to the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. What is especially interesting is that the coveted wood comes from the burl buried in the ground, and not from the trunk.  Thuya wood is known for its cedar-like aroma, luxurious colour, and swirly grain.

Please note that with changes in the humidity, the boxes can sometimes be difficult to open because the wood expands and contracts slightly.
