Sourced from Kenya’s Rift Valley, the wood has been reclaimed from abandoned stumps of Wild Olive Trees that have been cut down to make room for local farmland.
Instead of going to waste, the stumps and roots are dug up to clear the land to provide suitable conditions for planting crops. The stumps and roots are then re-purposed by a small Kenyan based team who saw the potential in the wood and couldn’t let it go to waste. The stumps are dried for 2-3 years, before it is re-purposed into beautifully crafted homeware pieces and furniture.
The unique grain, rich colour and texture of the olive wood stumps make these items one of a kind.
