Each piece of olive wood is carved using rudimentary tools, giving the bowl unique marks left by the hand of the artisan. The bone accent is crafted using the "batik" process which is an age old art used in Africa. The patterns are applied by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone into a dark brown/black dye, resulting in the beautiful African mud cloth designs.
Fair Trade is so much more than a product assortment. It's about safe workplaces, fair wages + community investment. By purchasing according to your values, you become part of this success story and help alleviate poverty for this generation and beyond!
Note: Because these are made by hand using rudimentary hand tools, no two are identical and variations are to be appreciated and enjoyed by the consumer. Sizes will vary a bit from piece to piece. Batik designs will vary. Each is a piece of art.
