Description

The Thuya tree is a Coniferous tree indigenous to the Western Atlas mountains of North Africa; its burl is a dense wood with a high oil content. Its color varies from rich golden brown to nearly black. This unique tree produces a large underground root with many outgrowths. The Greeks named it “Thuya” meaning sacrifice, because they used an oil distilled from it as incense in their religious ceremonies Our Thuya wood products are lovingly hand made by local craftsman in a small coastal town called Essaouira in Morocco. The finish that’s been applied to them is a hand rubbed shellac. This Thuya wood small bowl is ideal for paper clips, nuts, candy, or for putting rings in at night.
