OLIVE WOOD APERITIVE BOWL
VAN VERRE FAIR TRADE OLIVE WOOD APERITIVE BOWL
Olive trees are the most symbolic trees of the Mediterranean and represent purity and wisdom. Tunisian craftsmen have understood this and preserved this savoir-faire, taking good care of these hundred-year-old trees and shaping the finest products. The hand carving of the sun-dried wood follows the veins of the tree; there is nothing more pure.
With industrialisation, the future of the fertile olive groves that shape the Tunisian landscapes was put into danger. VAN VERRE takes part in a preservation program launched by the Tunisian government; for every olive tree that is cut, a new one is planted. In that way we do not harm the amazing heritage of the Tunisian olive groves.
Use: A rinse with warm water is more than sufficient to wash the robust olive wood’s. Do not put it into the dishwasher or use any detergent. A gentle rub of olive oil feeds the wood and enriches its lively markings, allowing this exceptional product to be enjoyed for years. It’s a piece of life on your table. Enjoy!
