The Greek Providore
Greek Olive Wood Mortar & Pestle
Greek Olive Wood Mortar & Pestle 16cm
Beautiful handmade olive wood grazing board from the enchanting village of Rizes, nestled in the eastern reaches of Arcadia, Greece. This idyllic agricultural village, surrounded by abundant olive groves, breathes life into these meticulously crafted pieces.
Immerse yourself in the story of resilience and sustainability as these are born from the weathered olive trees that have stood for over 200 years. Sourced from fallen olive wood, each piece is a testament to nature's artistry and the skilled hands of local artisans who transform them into timeless treasures.
To preserve its natural beauty, we recommend a gentle application of olive oil to enrich and protect the wood, ensuring it ages gracefully and retains its captivating charm.
Indulge in the unique character of the mortar and pestles, as no two pieces share the same wood grain. Every swirl and pattern tells a story of its own, making these one-of-a-kind masterpieces
How to look after your olive wood:
The olive wood will last a lifetime if it is properly looked after.
Hand wash only, not suitable for dishwashers
Occasionally coat with olive oil to prevent the wood from drying out and discolouring.
Do not leave soaking in water or exposed to heat or sunshine
Please Note: Each piece has it's own individual wood grain and no two pieces are the same and have an irregular shape.
Size approx: 16cm
