One of the greatest joys in any home is the kitchen.

One of the greatest joys in any home is the kitchen.
The kitchen is where we make the food we eat, the precious “item” we share as a family. Having family dinners, hosting guests, or celebrating any occasion, it all starts in the kitchen. For that, for the best cooking and hosting experience – we exist!

SkandWood was formed throughout an entire year. From 2014 to 2015 a man by the name of Gledis decided to share his crafts and passion with his family. While studying his degree in Italy, Gledis worked for a factory that made cooking utensils, and despite his studying and career paths- he fell in love with wood and the process of making beautiful and useful items from it.
Leaving Italy, Gledis had one goal in mind- to make the best wooden utensils in the market. And so he did.

After that year has past, being back home in Albania, Gledis’ family was now in the business of making and selling wooden utensils. The craft was taught to the letter, and the material used was only the most unique and high-quality olive wood (taken from the trees that were no longer producing olives).

The items you see in SkandWood shop are all made by combining 3 elements:
– High quality Italian olive wood
– Incredible attention to the smallest details
– And the love and support of a family.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

You will find the size of the item on centimeters/inches in the description of each listing!
You will also see how much each item weights.
Please remember that all of our items are handmade, so the size is not perfect and the weight is not always the same, they may slightly differ from the description listed!

Care instructions

To clean and wash your olive wood utensils, do so only by hand, with warm water and soap. Do not put them in the dishwasher and try to never let them submerge in water. Oil them regularly using sunflower oil or mineral oil (food grade), by rubbing them with a kitchen towel. This will prevent the wood from drying out and it will bring the grain back to life.
