Wooden Salad Servers

Wood carving in Kenya provides valuable income to many people in local communities where paid employment can be very scarce.
 
In the Neem Machakos district, south east of Nairobi, olive wood is being used in place of traditional timbers such as mahogany & ebony in a bid to aid in the reforestation of these timbers.

The carvers from the Kamba tribe obtain permits and supplement their agricultural income through carving. Discarded bone is bleached and dyed using the batik process, before being used for handles and decorations.
