Olive wood mortar and pestle
OLIVE WOOD TREE
Historically the olive tree is a symbol of power and peace. Faithful to the tradition of strength, many traditional kitchen utensils of Provence are in olive wood: Pestles and mortars, cutlery, bowls, cutting boards…
This is « the » Mediterranean tree par excellence, with renaissance in its core and a very robust texture, tight fibers and superb yellow polish with browny veins.
Cabinet makers and sculptors swear by it! Olive wood is very durable wood which provides the intriguing grain that makes each piece unique. As olive wood is very dense, it resists odors and stains better than other types of wood.
