Handcrafted utensils, pestles, mortars, & other cooking accessories!
Born and raised in Sfax, Tunisia, brothers Hatem and Walid Alimi learned the art of carving the trunks of olive trees as children. Today, the Alimi brothers (and family) produce naturally beautiful kitchen products, all boasting the distinct swirling patterns of the trees twisted trunks. Nonporous by nature and coated in a protective layer of olive oil, Natural OliveWood products are safe and sustainable. Olive wood is a hard wood making if very dense and durable for everyday use.
Caring for Your Wooden Kitchen Accessories
Never put any wooden kitchen accessories in your dishwasher- they will get dried out and splinter! Always hand wash your wooden kitchen accessories in warm soapy water. Do not soak the wood, but rather give a quick rinse and then let air dry. After often use or storage over a long period of time you may see that your wooden kitchen accessories are beginning to dry. Wipe your pieces with cooking oil or mineral oil. This should return them to their original luster and shine.
