Suar wood, also known as albizia or monkeypod, is from a fast growing rain tree grown in Kintamani on Bali, home of a poor farming and wood carving community. Impoverished farmers are often forgotten by governments and resort to selling off their land to outside developers leaving them with no resources and no rights. Mitra Bali established a farming co-op with these local farmers, provides financial assistance for food crop seeds and organic manure, as well as albizia tree seedlings which are grown as windbreaks and on 30% of the land, providing a useful timber resource for the carving activities. The outcome is no enforced land sales, a sustainable reforestation program and self sufficient farmers-artisans.
With a hint of Scandinavian design sensibility this stylish and beautifully hand made suar wood pedestal food display will become a timeless addition to your home.
