Product Description

After taking time and care to prepare your meal, serve it with a utensil set that's equally special. This hand carved spoon and fork set has a light feel that will allow you to serve your dishes with ease. 

The wood carvers of Palestine have long depended on tourists as their source of income. The conflict with Israel has made the region so volatile, that tourists are no longer commonplace and they are finding making a living very challenging. Finding new markets outside the country is one way to give them a better chance of supporting their families. They use tree trimmings and the wood from olive trees too old to produce fruit for their carvings, protecting future olive crops. Each piece is cut, sanded, and varnished to preserve the beauty of the graining olive wood is known for. This wood grain is unique to every piece made and will change the color variation depending on how it falls within that carving.

  • Made by hand in the Bethlehem, Beit Sahour & Beit Jala regions of Palestine
  • Carved from sustainably harvested olive wood
  • Set includes one fork and one spoon
  • Measures approximately 12"
  • Hand wash with soap and warm water. Air dry. Do not soak.
  • Any wooden spoon or cooking tool benefits from a very light rubbing of olive oil onto the surface twice a year. This light care will rehydrate the wood and keep  them nice for decades to come.
