Fair Trade salad servers wild olive

The wild olive tree has a gnarly tree trunk that shows the test  of time. These beautiful olive wood salad servers are made from trees such as that. It too comes with a jaunty blue olive Fair Trade tea towel to serve your home for many years to come.

We place our set in the top shelf of the dish washer or hand wash them and rub olive oil on them every now and then for longevity.

Simple, sustainable, Fair Trade!

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.
