The wood used to produce our olive wood collection comes to us by sustainable and environmentally conscious methods. These products are made from the wood of trees that no longer produce fruit, or from the tree trimming/pruning after the harvest season. In addition, new trees are regularly planted to maintain the region's natural balance.
Care instructions: Cared for properly, olive wood can last a lifetime. To ensure your product stays in optimal condition, be sure to hand wash only, and never place it in a dishwasher. Never soak olive wood in water. Once a month, it is recommended that you rub the olive wood gently with a coat of olive oil to prevent it from drying out. Keep away from direct prolonged sunlight, and avoid using in extremely hot foods. Use only for cool or warm foods.
