The paper of the shade is made from recycled fibers, adorned with leaves in many cases. The primary purpose of Mango trees is to bear fruit. The tree is cut down after the fruit-bearing lifespan, providing the farmer with a second source of income. Mango wood is a hardwood and is used because of its sustainablilty and its visual chararacteristics, such as its color and grain patterns.
