What is Wenge?


Wenge (pronounced “wengay”) wood is a tropical timber of the wenge tree from Africa. The tree’s heartwood is very dark and dense with a coarse grain and a pattern of nearly black grains separated by dark brown grains.
A Wenge Finish (pronounced ‘whenj’) is a rich brown colour with copper accents, taking its name from the shade of the Wengé wood it resembles.
