Collins has been working with olive wood in rural Kenya his entire life. He and his team cover large areas collecting fallen wood. At their workshop, they hand-carve each bowl and spoon into beautiful tabletop pieces. The entire community benefits from this skilled trade and the area is now known throughout Kenya for its woodwork.
