Black Beauty is back – but … no worries – it’s not a black horse galloping. It’s “le dernier cri” – made from finest ebony that makes you (by lightness and grace) an eye-candy and sweetens every moment.
Ebony and Ivory, a pairing which even has its own song – that‘s how valuable the wood from the Diospyros tree, from which ebony is harvested, is. As far back as ancient Egypt the wood, which mainly came from East India or Africa and is very dense (making it more durable), has been treated with reverence.
Although we only use small quantities of ebony obtained from furniture manufacturers unable to use it due to the size, we take care that it is all procured in areas where the trees are not endangered.
