Van Verre Sustainable Olive Wood Handmade Aperitive Bowl
These unique bowls are ideal for serving Aperitive or to serve starter/dessert. Can also be used for small storage, for example in your bathroom.
Olive wood is extremely hard; in fact, it is one of the hardest of all woods. Olive wood bowls remain smooth and intact for a long, long time, whereas regular wooden bowls start to fray around the edges fairly quickly.
The sun-dried wood is hand carved by Tunisian craftsmen who carfully follows the veins of the tree. Our Olive Wood items are only treated with grape seed oil.
Impact: Olive trees can live for hundreds of years, and while they take a long time to grow, the wood is often a by-product of the agricultural industry, since trees eventually stop producing good fruit. This makes olive wood a sustainable material. Van Verre takes part in a preservation program launched by the Tunisian government; for every olive tree that is cut, a new one is planted.
Care: A rinse with warm water is more than sufficient to wash the robust olive wood’s. Do not put it into the dishwasher or use any detergent. A gentle rub of olive oil feeds the wood and enriches its lively markings, allowing this exceptional product to be enjoyed for years. It’s a piece of nature on your table. Enjoy!
Notice! These pieces are one of a kind items. Therefore they vary in size & form designed by mother Nature.
