In the good old days the white keys were made of ivory this now no longer permitted by law.

I found an interesting website where you can learn more: www.uk-piano.org/history

Hope this helps

On some high quality pianos, the sharps are made from ebony, which is an exotic African hardwood. It is also used for fretboards on some guitars.
