Carved Main Image


The idea of personalised cutting boards came to two sisters, after they were looking for a unique keepsake for a friends Bridal Shower. After coming across a beautifully engraved cutting board from overseas, they were sold on the idea and knew that personalising a cutting board with a personalised message would be the perfect gift. And so Carved was born. And Carved wasn't the only one who loved this idea: from the very first engraved board, they were an instant hit! Everyone loved the practical, elegant, personalised cutting boards for their home, gifts, or corporate events.

Our mission became to simply make gifting easier.
