DESCRIPTION

Serve your loved ones in fair trade style and know the story of the artisans behind your beautiful olive wood bowls! 

Kamba wood carvers have a knack for creating works of functional art from the wood of the wild olive tree, a fixture of the East African countryside. This slow growing tree's wood is characterized by a rich undulating grain that lends individuality to each carved piece. The harvest of wild olive is strictly controlled to ensure that this life-giving tree will exist for generations to come. Kamba carvers work every scrap of wood into a useful item, from large salad bowls down to tiny spoons, giving each tree a life and continuing history in locales far and wide from East Africa.
