Swahili Modern


  • Handcrafted by Kenyan wood carvers out of beautifully grained wild olive wood, this useful mortar and pestle is simply constructed to serve for years.

    Size: [Mortar] 3.5"T x 5.25"D [Pestle] 8"L x 1.25"D.

    Care: hand-wash in warm water, completely dry, and occasionally rub with oil.

  • 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 their works, with marked improvements being seen for the individual, their families, the community.
