Acacia Wood

Why Acaciaware? Acaciaware is hand crafted from solid acacia hardwood. Each bowl is hand turned from one solid piece of acacia hardwood. Acaciaware has been sold to consumers, caterers, restaurants and hotels for over two decades. The hard grain of Acaciaware repels penetration by liquids, will not stain or pick up odors like garlic or onions. Each bowl and serving tray also has a protective, food-safe and water resistant finish. The finish is completely food safe and has been rigorously tested and exceeds all California Proposition 65 requirements of food safety. Acaciaware can handle moderate heat but cannot withstand hot pans or baking dishes taken directly from the oven.  Acacia wood is not dishwasher or microwave safe.

Acaciaware is Easy Care!  Simply wash the item with warm soapy water and air dry. If your acacia wood salad bowl, appetizer serving tray ever appears dry, treat it with mineral oil and the grain will be restored to its original beautiful condition.

Acaciaware and Sustainability. Acaciaware is responsibly forested with care. 'Responsibly forested' means that our wood is harvested in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.

Sustainability means:

  • Harvesting rates and clearing sizes that do not exceed a forest's natural capacity to regenerate.
  • Maintaining natural forest conditions needed for wildlife and healthy ecosystems to function.
  • Protecting and maintaining rare, threatened and endangered species and forest types.
  • Not clearing forests or replacing them with barren tree plantations.
  • Minimizing or eliminating chemical use.
  • Protecting streams and rivers from soil erosion that degrades water quality and fish habitats.
  • Helping workers, communities and indigenous people benefit from the forestry operations and protecting their rights and interests.
