In Canada nearly everyone has a BARIBOCRAFT Canada item in their household! This famous and traditionally Canadian company, located in Quebec, was in their heyday in the 60's & 70's making wooden ware in maple and teak; salad bowls, salt & pepper mills, cheese boards, steak & fish trenchers, nut bowls, cutting boards, candlesticks, hockey sticks, coat hangers, and many more items. They also had a division called BARIBO-MAID, making wooden ware for the food service industry. The quality of their wares was renowned the world over! Gorgeous grain, very sturdy construction and innovative styles! Sadly, they ceased production in the 70's.
Baribocraft items have withstood the test of time! With proper care, the wooden ware looks and functions just as well today as it did when it was created! To expand your existing set, begin your collection, or to find a unique gift MANDICRAFTS BEARS and COLLECTIBLES carries the largest selection of vintage Baribocraft on eBay worldwide!
Here are few examples of the beautiful Baribocraft items available:
To clean and sanitize wooden ware, use very little water. Water will dry out the wood. Never soak wooden ware in water! A small amount of coarse salt scrubbed gently on the surface will clean and sanitize your precious Baribocraft! "Feed" the wood occasionally with a skim of canola oil. It keeps the wood looking fresh and moisturized!
Recently, I found out that the Baribocraft trade name had been purchased, and the world may soon see NEW Baribocraft items produced! I have been assured that the wares will be made in Canada and will adhere to the traditional quality of the vintage items! To read more about this development, click below!
