absolutelyolive's Shop Announcement

As our shop name suggests, Absolutely Olive is where you well find beautiful items made exclusively from the instantly recognizable wood of the olive tree that has been growing in abundance here in Greece since time began.

Surrounded by these beautiful trees where we live, the products of the olive tree are a way of life for us and our shop on Etsy gives us the opportunity to offer objects that we make ourselves, as well as objects made by local artisans, to wherever your corner of the world may be - bringing the best that Mediterranean nature can offer into your home.

This beautiful hardwood comes from older trees that are no longer productive for fruit. It also comes from the pruning of younger trees which is a process considered essential for the growth and health of the tree. No trees are ever destroyed for the use of their wood.

The stunning grains and textures of this wood often darken with age making it the perfect wood for culinary items, such as boards, bowls and tools, which blend into the contemporary home for those who want a minimal/rustic look and prefer to invest in durable items that look better as they age.

Olive wood is easy to take care of and its dense grain can make it last for generations. A well-cared for piece of olive wood has a luster and color unmatched by any other wood, making olive wood an investment well worth the money.

You can clean (rather than soak) your olive wood products in warm water using a mild dish-washing soap. - do not wash in your dishwasher! Dry your item thoroughly and once a month or so wipe it using a circular motion, over the surface of the wood with a cloth dipped in olive oil. Work the oil into the sides, top and bottom of the olive wood and wipe off excess oil with a soft lint-free cloth or a clean paper towel.
