The Rustic Dish

The Rustic Dish

Our company came about over a coffee in Jeff's garden on a wonderfully sunny spring morning. We both love rustic cooking, and recipes, and really wanted to sell beautiful handmade rustic products that reflected on that part of our lives. We quickly agreed that olive wood is one of the worlds most beautiful woods and that was that and here we are! We now produce a beautiful range of cheese and cuttings boards and kitchen accessories, all carved from one peice of sustainably sourced olive wood. We are now expanding our range into other personalised rustic giftware where we continue to promote artisnal handmade products from around the world.

All our boards are designed in-house and made for us by artisans from around the North African region. We source our olive wood carefully from olive farms that discard their very old trees which have come to the end of their natural fruiting life. We are very passionate about this as it allows the olive farmers to sell, rather than discard, these old trees which in turn allows them reinvest in new, younger, more productive trees. This injection of investment allows the farmers to continue employing their family members and that of the local community in some of the poorest regions in the world.

Personalisation, designing and engraving is all carried out in-house by our lovely, hard working and very dedicated team. The engraving team specifically want us to point out that they look nothing like Pinocchio's Dad!?

We also aim to provide the best possible service and high quality products to every one of our customers. If you have any questions regarding our range then please feel free contact us and we will answer your query as quickly as possible.

Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
