This simply styled butter dish is hand carved from wild olive wood by Kamba carvers in Kenya. A beautiful tree prized for its richly grained wood, wild olive is legally sourced by carving cooperatives from protected lands. To utilize the entire tree, artisans carve large and small pieces, from bowls down to spice spoons and heart keepsakes.

To care for this lovely natural serving piece, hand wash in warm water, dry and rub lightly with a coat of olive or food safe mineral oil.

Sold singly. Because this is a handmade item, each will vary slightly.
