Olive Wood Paddle Salad Servers with Batik Bone Inlay

Swahili Modern


  • Wild olive wood is a preferred carving medium of Kenya's Kamba wood carvers for these beautiful yet durable salad servers. With extreme precision, these talented men draw beautiful serving pieces from the rich grain of this East African hardwood and add a bone inlay detail. Wild olive wood salad servers add natural beauty to the tabletop and season well through the years.

    Measures 7"L x 3.5"W x 0.25"T. 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 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.
