Regular Salad Bowl in Olive Wood
Handmade salad bowl in untreated and regular olive wood
Beautiful salad bowls made of untreated olive wood, unique pieces of 28/29 cm diameter.
Here is our story in Tunisia, where we manufacture our plates and our salad bowls made of olive wood. This work is the result of many improvements realized in collaboration with this small family workshop, which has made us benefit from its expertise over several generations.
The salad bowls, unique pieces, require between 3 and 4 hours of work and are made from the unproductive trunks of 150 to 200 years old.
Tunisia is the country where there is the most olive trees planted in the world (80 million trees!) and the wood from the trees that are too old to produce olives 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 expose 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!
