olivewood handmade coaster
Our coasters are handmade from olive wood and help to promote a sustainable olive tree pruning process.
Pruning is a key process for the well being of an olive tree. This is why, every 5 years, we give our olive trees a new haircut so they have more air and sun to grow stronger and focus on olives.
We promote an innovative pruning process, with the goal of reusing existing materials by producing something useful and ecologically responsible in 3 steps:
- Once the trees are pruned and the branches are on the ground, we collect the olive wood logs and sell them locally for use in chimneys and wood ovens.
- The small branches and leaves become organic waste and are used as biomass fuel.
- The specially selected logs are kept and reused to create our coasters. Here a local woodworker transforms the existing materials into beautiful olive wood coasters.
This sustainable coaster is ideal for keeping your extra virgin olive oil within reach when cooking or to place it directly on the dinner table to share with family and friends.
