Millettia laurentii

Wenge is the product of the Millettia laurentii tree. Native of the Republic of Congo, Cameroon, Gabon and equatorial Guinea. The tree was put on the endangeroured list due to the destruction of its habitat and over exploitation for timber.
Let this wenge post for the 52 weeks of colourchallenge blog be a cry to PROTECT OUR TROPICAL FOREST.
What you can do to protect the rainforest read here.

The colour wenge is a nice dark misty brown.. a very beautiful colour.
Because i wanted make a native tropical rainforest sphere i searched my inventory and found the fringe dress from sugar cube. The native look inspired me and i found the gorgeous native necklace, native shoes, a native vest and a native bag. And then discovered that the sugar cube shop is gone ((((
But the dress from Fishy strawberry is a very very nice substitute and has the wenge sort of colour ( although it is the black version )
Pictures made in the library with stuffed animals. I brought my tiny tree there as a warning that we need protect mother earth and not save all species stuffed up in a library (and yes the bookcases are wenge).

Great image, and yes, there are plenty of timber alternatives to using old-growth forests.

Have a great week.

What a beautiful post! I love the book lined study and the little tree. I didn't realise that Sugarcube had actually closed, a couple of my favourite dresses come from there...
