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.

    inlay is NOT bone..it is either plastic or thin metal..wood could have been sealed oiled or something but it looks fine a little chipping of inlay at one corner..was 't expensive but pier one would have had better quality

    I thought the bowl was going to be bigger, but it is still beautiful. Just a little disappointed that the bowl does not sit flat on the surface and is wobbly. I know these are hand crafted and everyone is different. This is going to be a Christmas present and I hope the person receiving it will take it in account that this is a handcrafted item and unique. Very pretty.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Is this food safe "

    • A:

      Yes these wood bowls are food safe. These bowls should be hand wash the bowl thoroughly after each use with warm water and mild dish soap. After washing, the bowl should be treated with olive oil to prevent the wood from drying out. I would also advise that the bowl never be put in the dishwasher, as it could cause over drying and cracking.
