Welcome to Natural OliveWood.
We are a family owned business operated by Walid Alimi, Hatem Alimi and Kerri Giovanelli. We began our company in 2012 after realizing a void in the market place for quality wood kitchenware.
Hatem and Walid were born and raised in Sfax, Tunisia. Surrounded by olive trees all their lives, working in the olive wood industry was inevitable. Hatem moved to New York City in 2001 to discover opportunities in America that he couldn't find in his hometown. He is our Director of U.S. Operations and handles business development and communication with Tunisia. Walid still resides in Sfax and is the creative mastermind behind all of our branding, website and artistic design. He is our Director of Tunisian Operation and manages production. Kerri grew up in New Jersey and moved to New York to pursue her dream of planning and designing events. She is our Director of Marketing & PR and manages all media relations. The three of us have come together bringing our own specialty skills to create Natural OliveWood.
We all love what we do and are happy to share our olive branches with you!
Peace and Love,
