Kenyan Olivewood Condiment Bowls - Set of Three
Kenyan wood carvers transform richly grained wild olive wood to create this set of three nesting condiment bowls. The harvest of wild olive is strictly controlled to ensure that this life-giving tree will exist for generations to come. Kamba carvers work every scrap of wood into a useful item, from large salad bowls down to tiny spoons, giving each tree a life and continuing history in locales far and wide from East Africa.
