An olive wood 'basket' style dish, with a handle, which has been hand carved from one piece of beautiful, ancient olive wood. This basket has many uses, from serving up bread, cakes, sweets or chocolates to being filled with a display of fresh, shiny fruit as a centrepiece to your table.
The olive wood for all of our items is carefully selected and only high quality wood is ever used. Ancient olive wood is taken from trees which have ceased to produce fruit and they are becoming increasingly hard to find. The beauty of the grain is staggering and each bowl is totally unique, as well as being an item that will become quite rare in the immediate future.
Olive Wood as it is extremely hard and long lasting, is suitable for all ingredients and will last a lifetime as long as it is looked after properly.
Another advantage with Olive Wood is that it has natural anti-bacterial properties so will only need hand washing and is not suitable for dishwashers.
These olive wood products are hand made and consequently, each piece is completely unique and will vary slightly to the one represented in these photographs.
This olive wood bowl is made to order and can take up to two weeks to complete.
When your Olive Wood products arrive they will be covered in a coating of olive oil but will soon dry out naturally. It is advisable to coat them regularly with olive oil in order to stop them drying out completely.
