Aniegre is a golden white colored exotic hardwood from West Africa. While Aniegre has been used around the world for quite some time, it has only recently been regularly imported to the United States. It’s long been a favorite of cabinet shops outside of the United States and is also sought after for high-end jewelry boxes, musical instruments, tables and other fine furniture. Aniegre is a cousin to the True Mahoganies and shares many of their characteristics, including the typical Mahogany shimmering figure thanks to its high silica content.
Often found in tropical Africa, hailing from regions eastern and western, anigre a medium texture with closed pores similar to maple, but does’t quite have the pure white wood look that maple has.
