Our relationship with the wood has always been natural and spontaneous. The processing of olive wood is a tradition to us, so, passing Wood philosophy from generation to generation, the art of wood carving became our passion and devotion. Our affection for wood and nature, in general, began from our childhood years. Our memories carry endless olive groves and the smell of the earth. The wood process and the carving method are like our second home.
Following faithfully the wood art techniques of our ancestors we gained the long-standing experience and know-how by also putting our modern touch on the evolution of the art of Olive Wood. We managed to build from scratch a reference point of our team, an art shelter, the fulfillment of our childhood dreams.
We create and offer you exceptional and timeless handmade wooden art products, from the start to the final result, directly from mother nature to your door
The processing of the wood is made entirely by hand, by the Olive Tree team, in a uniquely made workshop starring olive wood. The wood we use comes from areas of Crete, the Peloponnese, and Evia.
Processing wood is not an easy job that is why we are insisting on the importance of knowledge and love for Wood and Nature.
The appropriate time of maturation of the wood presupposes patience and art mastery since it takes up to 3 years to dry completely, ending up in its editable form. The wood we choose does not come from cutting down trees but only from olives that no longer bear fruit and do not produce olive oil. For the small wooden objects that you will find in our online store, we pick only branches cut during the seasonal pruning process of the olive groves.
The wood is processed in our workshop in Paros island exclusively by us with passion, love, and patience. Explore our workspace and see up close the whole experience of wood processing!
Our products are available in our physical stores in Athens, Thessaloniki, Ouranoupolis, and Paros. Create your favorite wooden items from olive wood as you have dreamed, or give an extraordinary gift to your loved, upon request.
