  • Impress your guests with this hand-carved cheese tray and batik-dyed spreader, each a handmade kitchen accessory from Africa.

    The cheese board is carved from legally sourced wild olivewood and includes a batik bone inlay. The spreader is carved from bleached cow bone, then dyed using a traditional wax method.

    Board measures 15"L x 5.5"W x 0.5"T and spreader measures 5"L x 0.75"W. For best care of the wood, hand wash and occasionally rub with olive oil.

  • We work with representatives with Kamba artists to obtain these hand-carved works of beauty derived from the olive wood tree. The artisans benefit greatly from the sale of their works, wtih marked improvements being seen both for the individual and the community.
