Light meranti wood beads have light, warm, tan coloring, and may have yellowish or slightly red overtones. Meranti is the modern common name for a wood that is also sold in the market as "Philippine mahogany" or "Lauan," although these are misnomers. You'll find a nice wood grain which adds visual interest, and the wood is light weight, but durable. The beads are wax polished by hand for a smooth finish. A perfect neutral to combine with other wood beads, shell, bone, gemstones and other natural materials. Come on, let's make something beautiful!
Note: The color of meranti wood can vary. Please see the pictures for the variation.
