The production of these bowls is part of a programme to stimulate young entrepreneurship in Africa and to provide employment to disadvantaged people under the “Fairtrade” principles (see production partners).
In consultation with small local artisans, with respect for the artisanal, new designs are being developed for the Western markets.
Each bowl is manually carveded and polished according to their traditional habits.
About the Artisans:
We work with representatives with Kamba artists to obtain these hand-carved works of beauty derived from the olive wood tree. The artisans benefit greatly from the sale of their works, with marked improvements being seen both for the individual and the community.
Olive wood has an excellent reputation for being harder and less porous than other woods. We recommend hand washing your wooden utensils with a mild detergent and warm water. Avoid boiling water and dishwashers as high temperatures may cause the wood to expand and split. Always towel dry after washing to prevent moisture cracks.
Rub your utensils periodically with mineral oil — when the utensils appear dull and the last oil treatment has worn off. This helps to prevent liquid from soaking into the wood and keeps it in good condition. After applying the oil, let the utensils sit for a few hours and then wipe off the excess. How often you treat the utensils with oil depends on how often they get used.
