Made by hand, olive wood mortars & pestles are ideal for crushing herbs and spices. The olive wood is an extremely hard surface that can sustain the force of grinding and mashing.
There are no chemicals or sealants on the wood. They are all natural and coated with only olive oil. Olive wood is a hard wood making it very dense and durable for everyday use. Olive wood is nonporous so no germs or odors are retained. All products are made from a single piece of wood—they are seamless and no two pieces are alike.

Natural OliveWood is a family-owned business that handcrafts kitchenware from non-productive olive trees. Born and raised in Sfax, Tunisia, brothers Hatem and Walid Alimi learned the art of carving the trunks of olive trees as children. Today, the Alimi brothers (and family) produce naturally beautiful kitchen products, all boasting the distinct swirling patterns of the trees’ twisted trunks. Nonporous by nature and coated in a protective layer of olive oil, Natural OliveWood products are safe and sustainable.
