Artisans in Kenya skillfully carve these salad servers from a single piece of wild olive wood using simple hand tools. This rustic pair of wooden salad servers showcases the beautiful and naturally varying wood grain featuring handles in traditional batik African art. Each serving piece has a unique twisted design at the base, and the handles are from highly polished and sanitized cow bone, sourced from natural causes. 

*Care* Hand wash only. Periodically treat wood with food-grade mineral oil or olive oil to maintain its beauty and luster.

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 10" L, however, due to the hand-carved nature, the actual size may vary by up to an inch.

Good to know
