Approximately 14" length
Made in France
Located in the Royans Mountains along the northern edge of Provence in France, this company has specialized in creating true French hand-crafted artisan items for the kitchen and home since 1892. Today's products are backed by more than a century of know-how and experience. At the company's state-of-the-art facilities, highly skilled craftsmen use their extensive experience to create a line of kitchen tools that is unparalleled both in terms of quality and design. All items, from cutting boards and salad bowls to spatulas and pasta servers, are hand-crafted from carefully selected woods such as olive wood, boxwood, and beech wood. The craftsmanship of each item is highlighted by the patterns and grain of the wood used. The irregular veins, grains, and knots of each piece of wood gives every kitchen tool its very own distinctive character and ensures that no two items are identical.
The blend of beeswax and mineral oil that is rubbed into the finished product helps protect the wood and gives the finished product a lovely satin finish. The company's deep respect for the environment and commitment to responsible wood sourcing is abundantly evident in their green practices. All raw materials are procured from sustainably managed, FSC certified forests, which only adds to the beauty of the finished products. The wood is harvested from older trees that are no longer fruit-bearing, thus creating functional art from trees that would have otherwise been destroyed. 100% of the wood is used in the manufacturing process. The loving care taken to create these products makes them the number one choice for anyone looking for wooden kitchen items that combine beauty, functionality, and sustainability in ample measure.
