Hand carved and hand-painted. No two are identical. Each set includes a fork, spoon and spreader.
Why You'll Love It: The bone is "batiked" which is an age-old art process used in Africa. The patterns are applied by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone into a dark brown/black dye, resulting in beautiful African mud cloth designs. 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."
Materials: Olive Wood and ethically sourced animal bone (animals that have deceased naturally).
Dimensions: Approximately 6-7" L
