Madagascar Ebony (Diospyros Perrieri/Gracilipes) Wooden Wallet
Madagascar Ebony is primarily found in dense tropical forests on the Western side of Madagascar and is the most precious and valuable wood on the island. It is sought after worldwide because of its superior quality and as a result it has been over-harvested (often illegally) and its supply is now limited, erratic, and is very expensive. The heartwood of the tree is considered to be the blackest of ebonies, sometimes with white streaks. Wood away from the heartwood can have quite a dramatic stripe that produces a most attractive grain. It is noted for being difficult to work with because of its extreme hardness but its fine texture provides an excellent finish. Its uses include, inlays, top quality joinery, sculptures, fingerboards of stringed instruments, chin rests, pegs and bow parts.
Every Madagascar Ebony wallet is completely hand made and no mass production techniques are used. Our skilled craftsmen work and sand each wallet by hand and the results are beautiful wooden wallets that are completely unique. The option to engrave them with up to 16 characters adds further personalisation as does the unique number assigned to each wallet.
Each wooden wallet includes a custom made flat spring that cleverly holds the contents in place and allows easy removal for use. With this in place your wallet will comfortably hold 9 credit cards or 18 average size and thickness business cards.
Your wallet will be presented in a high quality box that contains the shavings from the carving process from when it was manufactured. Supporting paperwork includes the unique number assigned to your wallet, further adding to its uniqueness and personal appeal.
