    Material - Wood

    Mango and sheesham, more commonly known as rosewood, are the two most popular types of wood.  While sheesham is stronger and harder, mango, as a softer wood is more easily carved.  Much of the wood used comes from trees planted specifically to be harvested for this purpose.  Monsoons and unseasonal rains can be a challenge for making sure the moisture content is appropriate.  Drying chambers and moisture meters are provided for artisan groups.
