This uniquely styled spice serving bowl is hand carved from wild olive wood by Kamba carvers in Kenya. A beautiful tree prized for its richly grained wood, wild olive is legally sourced by carving cooperatives from protected lands. To utilize the entire tree, artisans carve large and small pieces, from salad bowls down to spice spoons and heart keepsakes.
To care for this lovely natural serving piece, hand wash in warm water, dry and rub lightly with a coat of olive or food safe mineral oil.
I was looking forward to this item, but unfortunately I was disappointed that the bone batik in the catalog photo shows a vibrant white and black bo the actual item is very dingy and muted gray and brown. VERY DULL COLORS.
