Van Verre Sustainable Olive Wood Handmade Honey Spoon
A little miracle of Nature. This honey spoon makes a lovely present together with our Kalios Pine tree honey.
Olive wood is extremely hard; in fact, it is one of the hardest of all woods. Olive wood utensils remain smooth and intact for a long, long time, whereas regular wood items 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!
