Thuya wood comes from a Thuya tree which is a Coniferous tree indigenous to the Western Atlas mountains of North Africa; its burl is a dense wood with a high oil content. Its color varies from rich golden brown to nearly black. This unique tree produces a large underground root with many outgrowths. The Greeks named it “Thuya” meaning sacrifice, because they used an oil distilled from it as incense in their religious ceremonies Our Thuya wood products are lovingly hand made by local craftsman in a small coastal town called Essaouira in Morocco. The finish that’s been applied to them is a hand rubbed shellac.
This large Thuya wood bowl is great for many applications. Because These bowls are hand-made, they're all slightly different in size and shape. We don't recommend putting anything wet or acid in these bowls.
