These petite bowls are artfully carved by Kenyan artisans from a single piece of wild olive wood using simple hand tools . The craftsmanship showcases the beautiful natural wood-grain and each bowl is accented with bone inlay featuring batik artwork. Use these bowls in the kitchen or as a decorative item. We love the versatility of these small, but mighty pieces. Each piece is approximately 3.5-4 inches in diameter. Due to the hand-carved nature, actual size may vary by up to an inch.. Because these are made by hand using rudimentary hand tools, no two are identical and variations are to be appreciated and enjoyed by the consumer. Product Features: Measurements: Approximately 3.5 - 4 inches in diameter. Hand wash only. Periodically treat wood with food-grade mineral oil or olive oil to maintain their beauty and luster. Socially responsible product assortment that empowers consumers to purchase according to their values and help alleviate poverty. Fair Trade is so much more than a product assortment. It's about safe workplaces, fair wages + community investment for employees. Color: Natural. Materials: Ethically handmade in Kenya from sustainably sourced olive wood. Story Behind the Art: Each piece of olive wood is carved using rudimentary tools, giving the bowl unique marks left by the hand of the artisan. The bone accent is crafted using the batik process which is an age old art used in Africa. The patterns are applied by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone into a dark brown/black dye, resulting in the beautiful African mud cloth designs. Note: Because these are made by hand using rudimentary hand tools, no two are identical and variations are to be appreciated and enjoyed by the consumer. Sizes will vary from piece to piece. Batik designs will vary. Each is a piece of art.
