ARTISAN DETAILS 

Natural Olivewood is a family-owned business that handcrafts kitchenware from non-productive olive trees. Born and raised in Sfax, Tunisia, brothers Hatem and Walid Alimi learned the art of carving the trunks of olive trees as children. Today, the Alimi brothers (and their families) produce naturally beautiful kitchen products, all boasting the distinct swirling patterns of the trees' twisted trunks. Nonporous by nature and coated in a protective layer of olive oil, Natural Olivewood products are safe and sustainable. 

Lotfi is the head woodcutter that takes the raw tree branches and gives them their first shape. Larger branches are made into cutting boards and need to be sliced into long thin rectangular slabs. Smaller branches are used to make bowls, dishes, and utensils. These branches are cut into squares first before taking their final round shape. Lotfi's woodworking skills and eye for design allow him to determine what final shape each branch will produce. This skill is essential to the production process as it is the first step in crafting each item.
