These Olive Wood Nesting Bowls are a beautiful housewarming gift or an elevated set of preparation and serving bowls for your own home. Whether you wish for the whole set, a small trio of serving bowls, or you covet a particular size, you will be delighted with each bowl's distinct swirling patterns of the Tunisian olive tree's twisted trunks.
The wood used to make these beautiful pieces 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 bowl 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.
