This treasure's brought to you by Jedando Modern Handicrafts. Carving's a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents. Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or "African Ebony."

Ethically Made At Every Stage



Working with 100+ carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Handicrafts markets handicrafts primarily made of wood & bone worldwide. But Jedando's mission extends beyond gorgeous, high-quality homewares. They focus on educating local crafting partners about reforestation so raw materials can offer sustainable income for generations to come



All Our Shipping's Carbon Offset, But We Don't Plant Any Old Trees • We Reforest Lands With Their Native Flora, Not Quick Grow Tree Farms


Natural & Locally Sourced Materials



Olive wood bowls, salad serving sets & animal-shaped napkin rings are all hand carved — taking shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany + mpingo, or "African Ebony." While wood carving provides the major income for many in the Machakos area, other craftspeople earn a living by enhancing the products, including painting napkin rings & carving discarded animal bone for handles of salad serving sets. Often the bone is "batiked" by placing wax on white bone & dipping the bone a dark brown/black dye, producing traditional and gorgeous African mud cloth patterns.
