  • This set of 3 wild olive wood utensils, including a fork, spoon and spreader, are crafted by Kamba artisans in Kenya and feature bone handles hand carved to resemble the antlers of savanna antelopes like the topi, gazelle and waterbuck.

    Size: [Spreader] 1.5"W x 6.5"T [Spoon] 1"W x 6.5"T [Fork] 1"D x 6.5"T. The utensils will last for decades with simple care. Care instructions: Hand wash in warm soapy water, rinse and dry. Rub wood lightly with mineral or olive oil before storing.

  • 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.
