A useful everyday cooking utensil hand crafted in Tunisia. Care: Hand wash with soap and warm water. And oil periodically with any edible oil to renew the wood's natural luster. Who made this product? Natural Olive Wood is a family-owned business that crafts utensils from non-productive olive trees. Two brothers, born and raised in Tunisia, learned the art of carving the trunks of olive trees as children. Today, they use that skill to produce naturally beautiful olive wood pieces which highlight the distinct swirling patterns of the trees' twisted trunks. Why is it ethical? Natural Olive Wood upholds ethical principles by providing artisans with a fair wage, selecting trees sustainably, and recycling materials whenever possible. Nonporous by nature and coated in a protective layer of olive oil, Natural Olive Wood products are safe and sustainable.
