The story (October 2016)
Since we started this Wonderful journey, returning back to our roots in 2013, we always had a hidden desire to make something with the old olive trees which are facing a sad end.
Each year several farmers decide to remove some old trees in order to plant new ones (usually of different - "more promising in terms of future crops" - variety.

Each old tree will be cut into small pieces and sold as simple firewood.
In the modern world, unfortunately, usually there's no space for sentiment - only hunting for more profit.

During the summer, we had finally the chance that we 're looking. As we started a big project with some new Friends (we 'll present You this wonderful trip soon), we had the chance to gather by ourselves some old trees as they were cut down at the olive farms.

A new member of our Team, Nick, who's a passionate carpenter, worked for months to present a unique result. Beautiful, olive planks, in several shapes and dimensions, with a piece of bark, just to remind that this piece of wood was once a part of a marvelous tree.
And this tree hasn't gone forever. This part of it will live forever, in our home and hearts.

A wonderful and unique gift for Your Beloved Ones.
