Beautiful salad bowls made of olive wood, gross, unique pieces of diameter 28/29 cm.
Here is our story in Tunisia, where we manufacture our plates and our salad bowls made of olive wood. This work is the fruit of many improvements carried out in collaboration with this small family workshop which has made us benefit from his know-how over several generations.
The salad bowls, unique pieces require between 3 and 4 hours of work and are made from the trunks of non-performing aged 150 to 200 years.
Tunisia is the country where there are trees planted in the world (80 million trees !) and the wood is from trees that are too old to produce olives and are replaced by younger trees. If it is not used for such items, it is sold to be transformed into coal !
Maintenance: oil regularly with grape seed oil or another clear oil, and/or neutral taste. Do not ex-pose in a extended manner to the sun, do not wash in the dishwasher, and use lukewarm water instead of hot water. Cracks or rough edges can appear and disappear from time to time, the wood is alive! If a lasting crack appears with usage (which is very rare because the plates have dried for several months before being sold), fill with wood filler, let dry and sand lightly.
