Our aim is to encourage an eco-living lifestyle and reduce plastic waste. Use this washable, reusable, and portable cutlery set made from all-natural materials. The handle has been finished with sustainably sourced cow bone, helping to reduce wastage and continue cultural traditions. 

The contemporary wooden products are hand carved in a Nairobi workshop run by one of the founders of the popular Maasai Market in Westlands, Zephania.

These items are made from Wild Olive wood that is all sustainably sourced from Zephania’s own plantations in his hometown, Kissi, where he continually re-plants trees.

Olive wood has an excellent reputation for being harder and less porous than other woods. We recommend hand washing your wooden utensils with a mild detergent and warm water. Avoid boiling water and dishwashers as high temperatures may cause the wood to expand and split. Always towel dry after washing to prevent moisture cracks.

The same measures apply to wooden utensils with horn or bone accents.

Treat them once a month with a food safe mineral oil (we like to use olive oil). Simply rub in a small amount with a soft cloth to condition the wood and restore its warm, polished look.
