In-Tray in Tamo Ash Blonde

In-Tray in Tamo Ash Blonde

The Tamo Ash in-tray is made from stunning natural Japanese Tamo ash with solid brass details. The in-tray is just part of our luxurious Tamo Ash desk collection which includes a pen pot, desk tray, letter rack and waste bin. The in-tray is a perfect desk accessory and looks elegant in both contemporary and traditional interior settings.

Tamo Ash has spectacular almost three-dimensional figured grains. One is called ‘peanut’ figure because it has areas that actually do look rather like peanut or double-nut goober shells. Another is ‘waterfall’ figure because it looks like water falling over glass.

Apparently Tamo trees develop this peanut figure when strong vines encircle their trunks. This natural strangling restricts the flow of nutrients so the tree grows in spurts and this shows up in the grain. The Japanese requiring a good supply of figured tamo eventually learned to lash ropes around saplings reproducing the figure naturally made by vines.

We love it on a desk paired with the Tamo Desk Tray and Letter Rack. The in-tray also makes a perfect birthday or Christmas gift. Of course it comes in a fabulous Forwood Design gift box.

Lastly the Tamo Ash in-tray is exceptionally easy to clean. Just wipe with a dry cloth.
