Olive Wood Salad Serving Set with Design Handles

These 11 inch salad servers are carved from olive wood with a cow bone handle. The patterns on the handles are created by melting wax on the white bone and dipping the handles in a dark dye. Treated with oil they should last a life time. Handle designs will vary.

Meet the Artisans

Metal Artisan in Haiti

Working with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya and Jedando, Modern Handicrafts markets items primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. A tradition in Kenya passed down by generations, carving by use of 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. From wood carving to design and decoration, this production serves as life-sustaining income for many in the Machakos area.
