once a year, gino haddad picks a small quantity of olives from his groves in the rihaneh region of lebanon. each batch goes from field to cold-press within six hours of selection; ensuring its status amongst the highest quality oil’s available.

the handmade packaging is meant to reflect the special quality of ‘gino’s garden’ olive oil

 

 

 

to reflect gino’s unique approach, designer marios karystios created specific packaging to carry the product. ‘gino’s garden’ bottles are ceramic pieces produced in two uneven olive shapes. karystios, with help from christina laouri, used mathematical calculations to make the forms not only manufacturable by hand; but perfect for carrying gino’s olive oil. both designs are produced in greece by ceramist stelios laskaris.
