salad servers & spoons

salad servers alfresco

Wood carvers from Africa are coming into their own with these beautiful sustainable olive wood salad servers, while preserving the mahogany wood trees. They are hand-crafted with bleached bone on the tip of the handle for a natural feel.

I would hand wash and rub olive oil on them every now and then,  so you can enjoy them for a long time.

Hand Crafted, Fair Trade, East Africa

Wood carving in Kenya provides valuable income to many people in local communities where paid employment can be very scarce.

 

In the Neem Machakos district, south east of Nairobi, olive wood is being used in place of traditional timbers such as mahogany & ebony in a bid to aid in the reforestation of these timbers.


The carvers from the Kamba tribe obtain permits and supplement their agricultural income through carving. Discarded bone is bleached and dyed using the batik process, before being used for handles and decorations.
