Better with Age: Olivewood
Olive tree wood is one of my favorite things. There is something luxurious about its smooth, marbled surface and the warm color is just as beautiful. The bonus is that, if taken care of properly, it just gets better and better.
I try to pick up a good piece during travels so that my pieces have some meaning behind them as well. The cutting board above is from San Gimignano, Italy and the bowls are from Napa.
I love that the care for olive tree wood is simple and doesn’t require too much upkeep since it’s already a pretty smooth and has a good moisture content. It needs oiling here are there with Mineral Oil (maybe a year, or once every six months if you wash it often), and should always be washed by hand.
The idea of collecting good quality items that grow more beautiful with time is something that appeals to me.
Do you have anything like that? Things that get better with age (except for yourselves of course!) ??
