Olive wood is a warm sustainable wood with beautiful natural grains. Kenyan sculptors use richly granulated, sustainable wild olive woods, a species native to East Africa, for their products.
They make a variety of products of different sizes to efficiently use all the wood in a tree. This is a large round bowl made from natural olive wood. The wood has a natural grain in light and dark tones. The bowl is 10 in diameter and 4 in height. This bowl is perfect for serving a salad for two people.
To clean, wash by hand with hot soapy water, rinse and dry. Lightly rub the wood with mineral or olive oil to maintain the shine and smooth texture. Also check the small and medium olive wood bowls to accompany them with this bowl. This is a handcrafted item, so the product can vary slightly in color and craftsmanship from the images.
This product is made by wood carving craftsmen in rural kenya.
