Ceramic Olive Boat
Your new olive boat comes from Tunisia, where olives are still harvested from the trees with a pair of bare hands as opposed to the modernized techniques used throughout Europe. Unfortunately, the country is also steeped in extreme poverty, especially in its rural, interior areas.
Abir Moussi is an artisan with Le Souk Ceramique who took part in painting your lovely new olive boat. Born into poverty in the small, inland town of Beja, Abir managed to make it to Nabeul on the coast after finishing school. Not only has Abir been a painter with Le Souk since 2011, but his work with Le Souk has lifted three of her sisters out of poverty in Beja as well. Her sisters are now working alongside Abir in Nabeul.
