The wood used to make this beautiful two-piece set comes from olive trees that can no longer produce fruit ensuring a sustainable wood harvesting practice. Handcrafted with care in Tunisia, skilled artisans carve these one-of-a-kind olive wood products, sharing the beauty of natural materials in each piece. Every Olive Wood Jar is completely unique and features varying wood grain patterns. Shop sustainably and support Tunisian artisans with income-generating opportunities.
The Tunisian Ministry of Agriculture verifies non-fruit bearing trees, and certifies them before they are cut down. Once an olive tree is cut down, young saplings are planted in its place. Every piece is finished with soy oil and food-grade paraffin wax.
