Each ashcatcher is made from sheesham wood. Sheesham wood (Indian Rosewood) is a hardwood indigenous to India. The wood for this item comes from renewable forest plantations.
Each item is hand made in India and has been decorated with a brass inlay pattern. There is also a hole at one end to put an incense stick in and a groove down the middle to catch the ash.
The sheesham wood has been waxed to bring out the natural colour and grain and to give it a semi gloss finish.
