Olive Wood Salad Serving Set with Twisted Design Handles by Jedando Handicrafts

The appearance of this hand-carved salad serving set is of two thick twisted vines. Measuring 11 inches and treated with oil, they are designed to be long-lasting and for practical use.  Carved from olive wood and cow bone, the patterns are created by melting wax on the bone and them hand-dying them. Handle designs will vary for one-of-a-kind pieces.

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.
