Historic graphite mining in the Lake District is the inspiration behind the design on this striking chopping board. Use the plain side to chop and prepare and the decorated side to present your favourite cheeses, cold meats or fruit.
Mined as early as the 16th century in Cumbria, the large quantities of graphite found at Borrowdale were the purest quality ever to be found. For many years Borrowdale graphite was used for marking sheep (most probably Herdwicks), although probably best known now for its use in the finest drawing pencils.
Each chopping board has its own ewe-nique markings created by natural variations in the wood grain.
