---------------------------------

The craft of carving has been around for 2000 years in the Philippines. Filipino carvers make a variety of wood carvings like sculptures of deities, kitchen wares, children's toys, musical instruments, and handles for knives.
Traditionally carvers used a variety of hardwoods to make their designs. Due to decreasing natural forests from human consumption, the Filipino government has banned logging to protect natural forests. Carvers have now migrated to more sustainable options like acacia to keep their craft going. Acacia trees are fast-growing trees that rarely need fertilizers and can grow in any soil. Acacia wood is a sustainable source for production. Our collection of Philippines Acacia brings hand-carved dining collections made from acacia wood. Our acacia bowls and plates are a simple and minimal dining collection showcasing the craft of Filipinos.
