Interview with David Aviv of Mango Tree Fitted Bangles

Sometime in December, I was introduced to a bangle line Mango Tree Fitted Bangles seen in the Enjoy Weekends set. Being an accessory enthusiast, I had to check them out further. Mango Tree Fitted Bangles is a line of ECO bangles with 50 colors in three different styles: bold, slim and samba. This is an affordable line with prices ranging from 18-22 dollars. It’s not often you see ECO wear in such an affordable price range. Another reason why I like this bangle line, as opposed to other ECO lines, is the way the bangles are made. If you’re like me, you have the issue of lose, slipping, baggy bangles. The ones that do fit are plastic and childish. They aren’t something you can compliment a serious outfit with. So when I learned that Mango Tree Fitted Bangles makes bangles that fit small wrists, I was elated. I had the pleasure of interviewing the owners of the company to learn more about them and the bangle line.

Tell me a bit about yourself: name, location, affiliations.

My name is David Aviv and my lifelong partner is Helen Dukat, we currently reside in Tel Aviv, Israel. We are the designers of Mango Tree Bangles and together we create and design unique styles and colors which make our collection different from others in the market.

What made you sway towards accessories?
Through our travels around the world, I was always fascinated with the beautiful natural resources that were readily available.  The idea and the necessity came up to design and manufacture beautiful jewelry at a great price for all to enjoy. In Thailand is where we discovered the beauty of the Mango Tree, and the ability to create a beautiful product using this natural resource.
What are the defining features of your work?

As I am sure you can see by our products, each bangle created is handmade and hand painted creating a one of a kind piece of art.
Where do you get your inspirations?

Our inspirations are definitely derived from our world travels.
Is there anything you’d like to try your hands at doing?

In the future we hope to branch out and start designing bags, shoes, furniture etc. using natural resources.

How have your products changed since you started creating?

 We are always testing out ways to create different and unique colors that the world has not yet seen.

What can you be found doing on a Saturday afternoon

How did you come up with the idea to use organic timber for bangles
We are very conscience of the earth and how we are losing natural resources at a very rapid pace, we wanted to create a product that would not hurt but essentially help this world. Therefore, we only use the Mango Tree's when they do not yield fruit.

What are your future plans with Mango Tree Fitted Bangles?
Our plans with Mango Tree Fitted Bangles is to have a worldwide impact, where " Mango Tree Fitted Bangles" is synonymous with bangles/bracelets. Anytime a female is thinking about purchasing or wearing a bangle, they will immediately think Mango Tree.
