The ARABESQUE Walnut Tray is handmade using traditional wood inlay techinques. The geometric patterns are formed with an inlay of tin threads, and finished with a lettuce oil lacquer.

Our non-profit partner Turquoise Mountain is working in Jordan to connect Syrian and other artisans from across the Levant to global markets, helping to create sustainable incomes for producers and preserve their craft traditions.


  • Walnut wood with tin threads, with a lettuce oil finishing.

  • Due to the nature of natural wood, the pattern, colour and details of each piece is different.

  • As they are individually made by hand, there may be some variations in shape and size. No two pieces are exactly the same.


  • 30cm x 4.8cm.

Care Instructions:

  • Solid wood may expand and shrink with differences in temperature and humidity. Take care not to place your tray next to radiators or anywhere subject to excessive changes in temperature or moisture content.

  • To clean the tray, simply wipe down with a soft, lightly damp cloth to remove any dust. In the case of stubborn marks, a solution of mild detergent such as washing liquid may be used on the cloth. Avoid the use of bleaches.
