My story:

This unique spice serving dish is handmade by the 'Kamba Carvers in Kenya. These craftsmen carved this bowl from wild olive wood.

A beautiful tree appreciated for its richly grained wood,

Wild olive trees are legally extracted in Kenya by 'carving cooperatives' from protected areas. The 'carvers' always value their materials and raw materials. To use the whole tree, of course, the craftsmen cut large and small pieces from it. So they also make many other objects from this wood; salad bowls, spice spoons, and cool souvenirs


Origin of our hair: Kenya

Material: Wild olive wood, batik dyed cow leg (recycled)
