Hand-Carved Olive Wood Heart Dishes

Swahili Modern


  • These sweet bowls are carved using small knives from the wild olive wood tree, which is native to Kenya and known for its beautiful marbling. The bowls are organically shaped and thick, and they make unique additions to any tabletop.

    Sold as a set of 2, including 1 small and 1 large bowl.

    Small: 4"L x 3.75"W x 1"T. Large: 6"L x 5.25"W x 1.5"T. For best care, hand wash in warm water and occasionally rub with a coat of olive 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 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.
