About Olive Wood
Ancient olive wood is not only very beautiful, but it is also a truly sustainable resource. Although olive trees live for hundreds of years, they eventually stop producing olives and are then classed as ancient. Their trunks and branches become thick, gnarled and twisted, and it is this wood that is used in the creation of beautiful wooden artifacts. The age of the tree helps to create the unique grain patterns that make these items so individual. No two items fashioned from olive wood can ever be identical. In addition, the wood is hard, very strong and durable and has natural anti-bacterial qualities that make it ideal in the production of kitchen utensils, tableware and gifts.
