Hudston Valley-based Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. produces simple, stream-lined designs in small batches from sustainable wood. The dark and durable finish of their Blackline series of cutting boards is achieved through a natural reactive process using the tannic acid already present in the white oak from which it is carved. An elegant addition to the table that offers a distinctly modern flavour can be used to serve bread, pizza, cheese or dessert.
Hand wash with gentle soap and water. Board should be oiled more in the beginning and then later as needed. Highly acidic foods such as lemons will affect the natural dye.
“I think it’s possible to transfer intent through craftwork like this. You put love into it, and that that comes through on the other side… when a person uses something you made, they have a connection with how it was made and the person who made it.”Visit Designer Page
