Q natural shades and beautiful grain of the olive wood gives this kitchenware

antique shops that line the streets of the towns and villages of Southern
France you can find olive wood kitchenware looking even better with
age as the shade deepens over the decades.
Each product is hand crafted by a skilled artisan. The high density
and cross grain of the wood can make it the manufacturing process more
difficult. Each item is unique due to the differences in structure and
texture of the wood meaning no two turn out the same. Over time these
products change appearance as the wood ages becoming that favorite spoon
or bowl that is familiar and feels like home.
