Italian Olivewood Spoons
Why Olive Wood Is Special
Olivewood is rare because there are only a limited number of trees that can be sustainably harvested each year. In addition, it takes many years for an olive tree to mature enough to be harvested for wood. This makes olive wood a highly sought-after commodity.
Olivewood is prized for its appearance, density, burly grain, and fine texture. It is also very hard and durable, making it perfect for use in furniture making, flooring and construction. Many old buildings in Europe that were built using olive wood are still standing today.
Italian olivewood is considered to be some of the finest in the world. This is because the climate in Italy is perfect for growing olives, resulting in wood that is both dense and high quality. Italian olive wood is also considered sustainable, as it is harvested using sustainable practices that do not damage the tree or affect future growth.
