I ordered three of these olive wood spice bowls to give as gifts and they arrived today, and they are just beautiful. They are made by local herdsman in Kenya from reclaimed olive tree stumps . Each one is quite different in shape and somewhat varied in size, as they are crafted following the grain of the olive wood. As I expected, they are small, as another reviewer mentioned -- mine vary from about 2 x 3 inches to 3.5 x 3 inches and are the perfect size for table salt. Each has its own little matching spoon, each one also distinctly different in shape, and they are packaged individually in a small film bag with a little folder included explaining the process of how and where they are made. Very cool.I have already used one -- will be re-ordering a replacement to give as a gift. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who cares about free trade and likes to cook!
Beautiful set-color is exact!
First off, I have to say that O.Co stands behind their products! I had a problem with one set and they took care of me and the situation immediately! You cannot ask for anything better when you are dealing with online shopping! The problem I had wasn't with Overstock, but rather with the company that actually put everything together for shipping! That being said, that is why the set only got 4 stars. The price is about $10 less at Overstock than any other site that I checked out! I don't know about anyone else, but I will take a $10 difference in my favor any time I can get it! The color is just gorgeous and a nice weight also, not too heavy! It will make for a nice present. I'm sure it will be liked and appreciated. Thanks again O.Co!
