Set of Three Round Olive Wood Bowls from Kenya


Set of Three Round Olive Wood Bowls from Kenya.

Wood carvers of Kenya are known for carving olive wood. Olive wood is a warm durable wood with beautiful natural grain. Kenyan carvers use richly grained and sustainably sourced wild olive wood, a species indigenous to East Africa, for their products. They make a variety of products in different sizes to efficiently use all the wood from a tree.

This is a set of small, medium and large size round bowls made from natural olive wood. Wood has a natural grain in light and dark tones. Small bowl is divided in two sections and measures 8" in diameter and 2" in height. Medium bowl measures 9" in diameter and 3" in height. Large bowl measures 10" in diameter and 4" in height. These bowls are perfect for serving nuts, snacks, dips and salad. To clean, hand wash in warm soapy water, rinse and dry. Rub wood lightly with mineral or olive oil to maintain the shine and smooth texture. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.

This product is made by wood carving artisans in rural Kenya.
