Story Behind the Art: Working with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets products primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. Carving is a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents. Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or 'African Ebony.' An integral part of the organization's function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to enable the products to be available for years to come and offer a sustainable income for generations.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
This is very disappointing purchase considering a rather big price. I understand that a hand-carved item is not supposed to be perfectly shaped or finished but this one is made terribly crude. It is even unstable on a flat surface. Does not look good at all and not practical.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
