A Picasso single wooden lacquer tealight holder starts life as a jackfruit tree from managed plantations.

Jackfruit tree wood, which is used to make our Picasso single wooden lacquer tealight holder , is truly a magic tree. Not only does it produce the largest fruit in the world, it does so over and over again each season, providing a cheap, plentiful, nutritious food source, medicines, wood for timber, dye for clothes, glue and food source for goats!

Each tree can grow up to 150 jackfruits over the two harvest seasons it can have each year making it an invaluable food source. It has even been hailed as a miracle solution to alleviating starvation in many areas of the world and as a way of meeting the challenges of climate change which could see traditional crops in some areas of the world die out.

Typically growing in sub-tropical locations in South and South-east Asia, each tree requires regular pruning to maintain its productivity. It’s easy to grow, drought-tolerant and disease-resistant. The timber has a long tradition of being used in building Ruong houses in the central provinces of Vietnam, shelters in Hoi An and Hue, Buddhist statues and fish sauce barrels. In other areas of Asia it is prized for making musical instruments.

As the jackfruit tree is indigenous to Vietnam, it’s viewed as a sustainable crop which means it adds to the ecosystem and doesn’t destroy it. It has adapted to the local climate and all parts of the tree can be used.

Here at Silkwood Traders, jackfruit wood is used in many of our products including the round tealights, bowls, vases, trinket boxes and natural wood wine holders.

Our Picasso single wooden lacquer tealight holder is carefully prepared, hand-painted and layer upon layer of lacquer applied over a period of several months. In between each layer of lacquer, the item is left to dry, sanded back and then another layer applied giving a beautiful shine and depth of colour. It also results in a strong and robust finish which can withstand most bumps and drops. But always better to be safe than sorry so we always advise to handle with care.  After all, it took three months to make!

Silkwood Traders Picasso single wooden lacquer tealight holder  is suitable for all standard tealights. We advise that only tealight candles with an aluminium outer are used. Each hole has a flame retardant inner. As with all candles, they should never be left unattended and the tealights should be properly extinguished before they fully burn down.

The Picasso single wooden lacquer tealight holder  is packed in a plain white cardboard box (we regret silk boxes are no longer available for this item) and also included is an information card about how lacquerware is made. Tealight candles are not included.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Just received tea light holders and bottle holder in the Picasso design. Absolutely fabulous. I have a modern pared back home and these three products on a white tablecloth when entertaining look stunning and expensive. Would definitely order more for presents. Oh by the way, speedy delivery – I am so impressed.
