Olive Tree (Olea Europaea) Wooden Wallet
The olive is amongst the oldest species of tree in the world and existed in Ancient Crete, Palestine and Syria over 5,000 years ago. The Olive tree and its oil have significant mentions in the Bible, and the Koran, and it has its place in the history of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Today, it is widespread throughout the Mediterranean Basin, North Africa and the Middle and Far East. It is of major agricultural and financial importance in the Mediterranean region because of its olive oil. Olive wood is very hard, durable, and is prized among woodworkers for its colour and attractive grain patterns which are often figured with curly swirls. It is yellowish brown in colour with darker brown or black contrasting streaks. The trees are not felled commercially because of the value of the fruit they yield so availability is relatively rare, and consequently, expensive. Olive wood is particularly amenable to turning and carving and its uses include high-end furniture, veneer, kitchen utensils, carved wooden bowls and specialty decorative items.
Every Olive Wood wallet is completely hand made and no mass production techniques are used. Our skilled craftsmen work and sand each wallet by hand and the results are beautiful wooden wallets that are completely unique. The option to engrave them with up to 16 characters adds further personalisation as does the unique number assigned to each wallet.
Each wooden wallet includes a custom made flat spring that cleverly holds the contents in place and allows easy removal for use. With this in place your wallet will comfortably hold 9 credit cards or 18 average size and thickness business cards.
Your wallet will be presented in a high quality box with supporting paperwork which includes the unique number assigned to your wallet, further adding to its uniqueness and personal appeal.
