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 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.

I ordered a few sets of these for Christmas gifts and kept 2 sets for my self. They are terrific. I thought the children would get a kick out of them but it's the grown-ups that are more excited with which one they get and swapping them out. So much fun and so well done. Nicely made and a very good size. Much larger than I expected.Read More
It was a breathtaking trip through Kanya and Tanzania. We brought back several wood carved bowls, frames and other practical gifts. Every time I use one of them, I am immediately taken back to the golden hue of the endless plains on the Serengeti. I have been looking for lovely, elegant napkin rings for my table and came across these hand carved rings. The are beautifully made, some in natural wood, some painted in a natural pigment. They are just as beautiful as anything we bought while traveling. In fact, we'll keep it as our secret. The added bonus is that we are helping local artisans, which is also what we did while traveling. We went to the sheds where the artisans worked, not the typical tourist spots. These napkin rings come with a certification from the Jedando Modern Handicrafts an organization focusing on helping the artisans make a living. I googled it and they are legitimate.Read More

Carvings are poorly done. Colors are no where near as bright as picture portrays.Read More
We have an African animal theme in our living room general area, so the carved napkins rings depicting six different animals are perfect with our decor. I traveled to Kenya years ago, but did not have interest in decorating with that theme until recently. I'm glad that Kenyans benefited from my purchase.Read More
I love these in the photo, but they do not look like this in real life. The unpainted pieces are quite dirty and dull, and I do not know yet whether they will improve with washing and oiling. I hope so, but it might require some sanding as well. The painted pieces are nicer, and come closer to looking like the photo. I really wish these looked as good as they do in the picture! I'm really disappointed.Read More
Most of the carved animals were instantly recognizable but one required scrutiny to figure out which animal was represented.Read More
