Whether you're looking for a gift to give or a gift for yourself; whether you're looking for something for the holidays, special occasions or every day use, Acaciaware is an exceptional choice. The Acaciaware Oval Serving Platter can be used to serve snacks, appetizers and main dishes. It measures 16 by 10 by 1.5-inch. Acaciaware, by Pacific Merchants, is the highest quality and best valued Acacia woodenware available on the market; the bowls are hand turned from one solid piece of Acacia hardwood and the serving pieces are hand carved, making each one a unique, sculptured work of art! Acaciaware is a dense, naturally resinous hardwood which, by its very nature, resists penetration by water and will not absorb stains or odors. Acaciaware also means "easy care". Hand wash with warm soapy water and air dry. It doesn’t typically require oil but, if for some reason it appears to be drying out, simply use a non-toxic mineral oil to restore the wood grain to its original beauty. Creating high quality woodenware is not Pacific Merchants only concern, they are also concerned about the environment. Their wood sources do not harm the environment by using "slash and burn" methods of harvesting trees. All of their wood is "harvested with care" meaning that the trees they use are harvested legally from privately owned lands, which are highly regulated and monitored by the government. Pacific Merchants cares about sustaining the environment and are constantly looking for wood sources.
