These salad severs, handmade in a fair trade cooperative in Kenya, are both beautiful and functional. They are hand carved out of teak and feature a batiked bone inlay on handles. The inlay is made from discarded animal bones which are "batiked" by placing wax on the white bone and then dipping it in black dye, resulting in unique patterns.
The wood grain will vary on each pair.

She was widowed in 2001 and left with 2 small children. Through her hard work she has helped create a thriving fair trade cooperative where all of the artisans are paid excellent wages and work in safe conditions.
