We love sustainably sourced materials.....so much so we have partnered with the amazing Eden Reforestation Projects where we plant a tree for item we sell!
The Rustic Dish® started, originally, as a food blog where we shared a love for rustic cooking and recipes and really wanted to sell beautiful handcrafted rustic products that reflected on that part of our lives. We quickly agreed that olive wood is one of the worlds most beautiful woods and that was that and here we are..........after highjacking the blog name. We now produce a beautiful range of cutting and serving boards and kitchen accessories, all carved from a single piece of sustainably sourced olive wood. We have been expanding our range into other home and giftware, whilst keeping within our handcrafted and sustainability vision, and continue to carefully source and promote artisanal handmade products from around the world.
All our items are designed in-house and made for us by artisans from North Africa, India, Nepal and Italy. We source our olive and mango wood carefully from fruit farms that normally discard their old trees that have come to the end of their natural fruiting life.
We are all very passionate about this as it allows the olive farmers to sell, rather than throw out, their old trees which in turn allows them reinvest in new, younger, more productive trees. This injection of investment allows the farmers to continue employing their family members and that of the local community in some of the poorest regions in the world.
Personalisation, designing and engraving are all carried out, in house, at The Rustic Dish workshop by our hard working and very dedicated team.
We at The Rustic Dish are also committed to providing the best possible service and high quality products to every one of our customers. If you have any questions regarding The Rustic Dish range then please feel free contact us and we will answer your query as quickly as possible.
Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

Planting a tree for every item ordered!
Sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do here at The Rustic Dish, so we are incredibly excited and proud to announce our partnership with the amazing Eden Reforestation Project, a charity that plants tens of millions of trees every year in some of the most deforested and poverty stricken regions of our planet.Not only is our olive wood sustainably sourced but we now commit to donating the cost of planting a new tree for every item we sell, even a butter knife! We can make thousands of butter knives from just one olive tree, but placing an order just for one of these will result in a tree being planted in a deforested area of the planet.
Our target for the next 12 months is to plant 100,000 trees. This is not a pledge but a direct financial donation by The Rustic Dish to the Eden Project.
