Why did you choose this product?
This beautiful olive wood bowl will be perfect for serving olives....and lots of other things too. The wood is smooth with a faint aroma. There are three pieces of inlaid bone around the rim giving it a very African look. It also has a small base on the bottom to stabilize its movement. If you wish, you treat it as there are plenty of instructions you can find online. I'll going to be on the lookout for a larger size of this one....

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.

Bought this for my daughter who said it's great for a single salad. She is thrilled with it. I had hoped it would be able to serve the family but it is not. Perhaps I'll get 3 more and then everyone can have their own.Read More
