About Olive Wood

The weight of so many symbols – peace, fertility, purification, strength, victory and reward – will bend but not break the olive tree. This is 'the' Mediterranean tree par excellence, with renaissance in its core and a very robust texture, tight fibres and superb yellow polish with browny veins. Cabinet makers and sculptors swear by it. And so does Bérard, judging by its many fine products made out of this material.  Olive wood is very durable wood, which provides the intriguing grain that makes each piece unique.  As olive wood is very dense, it resists odours and stains better than other types of wood.

Responsible Wood Procurement Policy
Bérard France is committed to responsible wood sourcing to protect and conserve this vital natural resource, and only use wood obtained from known, legal, and well-managed timber sources. 

Each item is produced by respecting the most important values of the company which are the people, the material and the environment. They continually search to protect the nature that surrounds them, so that the next generation can enjoy the beauty that we have come to know.

All of their olivewood items come from agricultural orchards and each tree is cut with respect to the laws that protect each country and the use of olive wood. Their olive wood items are produced from very old trees (trunk but mainly branches), which no longer bear fruit.  In essence, the wood is sustainable as opposed to being discarded. 

Their production is organized so that they use 100% of the wood. They tend to repair the little imperfections in the wood instead of applying a chemical treatment in order to have a uniform and smooth surface. The balance of the wood that is not suitable for production,  is used to heat the drying chamber and the building in the winter, so no wood is wasted.

Each piece is artisanaly produced. They maximum what the trunk has to offer, therefore, uniformity does not exist and the little “imperfections” belong to this natural product.  No two pieces are exactly alike.

This item should be hand washed and never put in a dishwasher.  A light wipe of food-safe oil or beeswax can be used to restore the olive wood to its original lustre.
