Artfully carved from a single piece of wild olive wood using simple hand tools, this rustic pair of wooden salad servers showcase the beautiful natural wood-grain, contrasted by handles featuring traditional batik African art. Each serving piece has a twisted design at the base of the handle. The server handles are from highly polished and sanitized cow bone, sourced from natural causes. 

Each piece is approximately 10-inches in length, and the handle is painted by hand. Due to the hand carved nature, actual size may vary by up to an inch.

THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Jedando

Country: Kenya

"Working with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets African handicrafts primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. Carving is a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents. Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or "African Ebony." An integral part of the organization's function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to enable the products to be available for years to come and offer a sustainable income for generations. While wood carving provides the major income for many in the Machakos area, other craftspeople earn a living by further enhancing the products including painting the napkin rings and carving discarded animal bone for the handles of salad serving sets. Often the bone is "batiked" by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone a dark brown/black dye, resulting in patterns African mud cloth designs."

Makes a basic wood bowl much more interesting.

These wood utensils are beautiful. I was a little worried that the cut outs would make them more susceptible to breaking but they seem fairly sturdy. I will probably just use them for salads and fruit.
