Irregular Giant Salad Bowl in Olive Wood
The salad bowls, unique pieces, require between 3 and 4 hours of work and are made from the un-productive trunks of 150 to 200 years old.
These pieces are unique and the salad bowls of a diameter superior to 30cm are very rare because they require trunks with a large diameter. We have less than 10 pieces in stock.
Sizes of the salad bowls : from 30.5 to 32.5cm
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.
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 ex-pose in a extended manner to the sun, do not wash in the dishwasher, and use lukewarm water ins-tead 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 se-veral months before being sold), fill with wood filler, let dry and sand lightly.
