These salad servers have been hand carved from sustainably sourced olive wood in Kenya. Artisans have accented the handles with batiked cow bone, which has been sourced in an ethical manner. Each salad server has been treated with food-safe sunflower oil.
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.
This set of Salad Servers is approximately 13" long. Ethically handmade in Kenya.
Each server has been individually carved by hand and no two are exactly alike. Due to the handmade nature of each piece, there may be small marks and variations that add to the item’s patina, and tell a story of its unique history and significance.
