Olive wood is a warm wood with detailed grain patterns that is known for its durability. The carving of olive wood is a craft native to Eastern and Southern Africa, and touches upon many countries in the region. Our Fair Trade artisan partners reside in a small, rural community in Southwestern Kenya. The group is completely self-taught and relies entirely on this craft for their sole source of income. They are known throughout Kenya for their prized and detailed woodwork.
