Salad Servers

Olive Wood Curved Salad Claws with Bone Inlay

Swahili Modern


  • Bring traditional African design into the modern kitchen with these unique salad servers featuring bleached cow bone inlay. These exceptional servers are hand-carved from a single piece of olive wood and hand-sanded to a smooth finish.

    Wild olive wood serving pieces are hand-carved by Kamba people living in the bush of Eastern Kenya. Special permits must be received to fell an olive wood tree, and the carvers make use of every inch of this prized wood. Often several artisans work on a single piece, with specialties in carving, smoothing and adding cow bone.

  • Measures 8"L x 3.25"W. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, slight variation may occur. 

    Made from wild olive wood, bone, and dye. Hand wash in warm water, dry promptly and rub with oil before storage.

  • 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.
