Fakher Baklouti

Third-generation artisan Fakher Baklouti inherited his craft from his father, who learned it from his father. The family business? Wood working, transforming Tunisian olive trees into rich amber bowls and platters that almost seem to glow. “It is our family heritage,” Baklouti says of his profession. “This is not simply a work that I am practicing with my hands. It’s a passion, a love story!”
