Kenyan Olive Wood and Bone Pendulum Salad Servers

Swahili Modern

JKWS17B

  • Known for its brilliant grain patterns and durability, the wild olive tree native to East Africa used by Kenyan artisans to hand carve useful salad servers. This set of a fork and spoon has a pleasantly curved pendulum shape and handles adorned with bleached cow bone.

    Size: 9.5"L x 3.5"W. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, slight variation may occur. Hand wash only.

  • 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.
