Olive Wood Mortar and Pestle Spice Grinding Set

Swahili Modern


  • This useful mortar and pestle is hand carved from beautifully grained wild olive wood by Kenyan artisans. Each piece is completely unique and simply constructed to serve for years.

    Size: [Mortar] 3.75"T x 4"D [Pestle] 7"L x 1"D.

  • We work with representatives of Kamba artists in Kenya to obtain these hand-carved works of beauty derived from the olive wood tree. The artisans benefit greatly from the sale of olive wood products, with marked improvements being seen for the individual, their families, the community. The olive wood tree is sacred to Kenyans and appreciated worldwide for its beautiful grain patterns and durability.

  • Hand wash in warm water, dry, and occasionally rub with olive oil to keep the wood conditioned.
