In our olive groves, we always find olive wood, which is suitable for further processing. Five years ago, e.g. in a storm a tree of about forty years old with a height of eleven meters uprooted. Since then, the olive wood has been drying for the cutting boards, which Spiros makes by hand.
The planks are worked from one piece, the natural shape and possible knot holes are retained. This creates very individual workpieces. By the fine grinding and the treatment of the surface with olive oil the beautiful grain appears in a warm color.
Beside the olive wood boards, Spiros also produces salad cutlery and knife handles.
You can buy the olive wood products either directly from us in Kolbermoor or at our market stands.
Since the earliest days of mankind people love art. Already in antiyutiy, the Hellenes produced astonishing sculptural works of art from the wood of the sacred tree. In Corfu, with over 4 million olive trees, olive wood carving and olive wood sculpting is an ancient tradition. This tradition is continued by the artists of the Koskinas family. For more than twenty years, they have been creating unique objects that are made by hand.
The Koskinas and Sgouros families have known eacht other for many years. We are very happy about the cooperation!
