    Goodness...and they're even made with real kevazingo wood, too, whatever that is.

    Edit: I did some research and found this:

    Kevazingo is popular because of its decorative appearance and favourable properties. The wood can be used for exterior applications, but is mostly used for furniture, cabinetwork, stairs, parquet, moldings and joinery (panelling).

    Timber from Kevazingo trees is highly valued in Asia. The Japanese and Chinese use it to make chic tables and chairs, as well as wooden bells, panels and specialty guitars, which count among export products.

    Bobinga Kevazingo is a very hard wood from Africa most of us called Bubinga. I believe it is a protected specie now - rare and expensive.
