About The Artisans
This is a family- owned business operated by Walid Alimi, Hatem Alimi and Kerri Giovanelli. They began the company after realizing a void in the market place for quality wood kitchenware. Their company uses only olive wood that has been cut down for being non-productive, meaning they are too old to bear olives any longer. This wood is "up cycled" to have a new life as the most durable and beautiful kitchen utensils you could find.
Olive wood is hard, heavy and strong with a high overall density. Its unique grains and warm tones distinguish it from all other woods. The olive wood contains brown streaks that contrast beautifully with the lighter yellow streaks. The wood's slightly sweet smell is particularly noticeable and will generally retain its aroma for many years.
Our olive wood grows under the Mediterranean sun, benefiting from a hot and dry climate. Most of these trees grow to be centuries old, allowing the wood to mature and strength for maximum durability. The high density and interlocked grain of olive wood requires the careful work of skilled and experienced artisans. Olive wood takes very well to polishing and a fine luster can be achieved with frequent coats of olive oil.
