The Soka Bud in Recycled Rosewood


In stock


Hand carved from sustainably sourced root wood left from plantations in Indonesia, no piece is ever the same, they are unique from their shape to the grains in the wood. The Soka Bud has a long and slender shape with a floral and feminine feel. The design is inspired from the budding flowers of the Soka, known in the tropical climates as ‘West Indian Jasmine’.
