Not simple furnishing elements but pieces of history
We use the wood of centuries-old olive trees, without cutting them down, but using seasonal pruning waste. Each product is numbered and certified. Pruning is not commissioned by us but carried out by the supplying agricultural companies, only if necessary for the plant, and is verified by pruners in possession of professional qualifications recognized by official bodies.
We donate 4% of each sale to plant olive trees in Salento tormented by Xylella, supporting the Apulian association OlivaMi.

In the dialect of Bisceglie, the word 'Chianghe' means 'slabs of stone.' An ancient language that traces its origins back to time immemorial, perhaps inspired by the ancient dolmens that populate the town's countryside.
Among these, perhaps the most famous and well-preserved is the 'Dolmen della Chianca,' an imposing megalithic monument dating back to the Bronze Age. The work, composed of three large limestone slabs (the chianghe), forms a kind of 'edicola' in which archaeologists have made unique and surprising discoveries compared to the 'classic' ones in the region.
Looking at this impressive structure today, one is amazed to see how these ancient slabs still manage to support and withstand the weight of millennia. It is precisely to these monuments that Aliva pays homage with the 'Chianghe Bookends,' a home decor item that not only embellishes but also harks back to the ancient dolmens of our ancestors with its solidity.
