This vase is made from Sweet Chestnut, sourced from National Trust's Ashridge Estate.

The dark colouring is made by ebonising the wood with a mixture of vinegar and iron, these cause a chemical reaction with the tannin in the chestnut and the result turns the fibres of the wood black. 


Every Hertswood product comes with a handwritten card containing care instructions and explaining more about the wood and where it came from.
