Favoured for its beautiful grain and dense durable character, Mediterranean olive wood has been used for centuries to craft fine tableware and utensils. This olive wood is selected selected groves mainly in the south of Italy. The wood is only harvested when olive production has ceased or branches have been cut as part of the pruning process. Over time, with oiling and use, olive wood will darken in colour and develop a rich patina, further enhancing the appearance and grain.
