An attractive circular olive wood salad or aperitifs bowl with inlaid batik bone detail . These bowls are approximately 8" (20cm) in diameter, large enough to serve salad for 2 people and great as a snack bowl also. They make a great decorative centrepiece when not in use.
These bowls are made in the village of Makindu on the slopes of the Chullu Mountains in Eastern Kenya; the wood craftsmen and women here have formed a cooperative to ensure they share and receive a fair wage. Several designs of batik inlay are available - stripes, way lines, spot etc. Please message when ordering if you have a preference.
These items can be handwashed or wiped clean with normal washing-up detergent and water. It is advisable to occasionally rub some olive oil into the wood to keep it in prime condition.
