We stock a variety of kitchenware made of olive wood in Provence. The
Q natural shades and beautiful grain of the olive wood gives this kitchenware

in France has a long history and in the many flea markets and 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.
