The wondrous neem tree is famous for its many medicinal qualities. While neem leaf and bark have been used for ages, neem wood is now gaining in popularity. It is being shaped into kitchenware. Since 2010, Tora Creations, a micro-enterprise in east Delhi, has been manufacturing spoons, spatulas, platters, bowls, coasters and other serve ware. Tora also sells razors, toothbrushes, tongue cleaners, combs and bottle cleaners made of neema wood.

“Ours is a family business,” says Siddharth Gola, “We never cut trees. We buy all our neem wood from Chhattisgarh from forests where trees have been sustainably harvested.” Neem products have been selling especially well due to the coronavirus pandemic and exports have been picking up. You can buy online and for Delhi customers a home delivery option is available.
