    Story Behind the Art:

    Working with more than 100 carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets products worldwide of wood and bone. Carving is a tradition in Kenya, and children learn from their parents. Pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo (African Ebony) are hand-carved with rudimentary tools to become olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings. An integral part of the organization is to educate on the need for reforestation and to provide a sustainable income for generations. Wood-carving provides the major income for many, other craftspeople earn a living by further enhancing these products, such as painting the napkin rings and carving discarded animal bone to form handles of salad serving sets. Often the bone is batiked by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone in a dark brown/black dye resulting in African patterns and mud cloth designs.
