Handcrafted from sustainably harvested olive wood, this beautiful heart-shaped tray features a cutout heart that doubles as embellishment and for hanging the tray when not in use. The simple shape of the tray, hand-carved by Kamba people living in the bush of Eastern Kenya, allows for the the dramatic grain of the olive wood tree to shine through.
Due to the variations in the natural grain of the wood, each piece is different in color and grain pattern.
Care instructions: For best care, hand wash and occasionally rub with olive oil.
About the artisans: Fair trade extends each artisan's channel of trade from local markets to the global marketplace, all the while providing talented African artisans with options to work from the comfort of their own homes and communities. Secure in the knowledge that the fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs and haggled prices, most artisans in the fair trade network promote their family's future by using earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.
