Blackwood Nibble Bowl


This item is currently out of stock

An eye-catching bowl or pinch pot for nuts, dips, olives, salt, sugar and spices.

They’re carved from sustainably sourced African Blackwood.

They’re handmade in Mtwara, Southern Tanzania by the Makonde Wood Carvers: a group of artisans who are training local, talented people with woodworking skills. The creation of each of these spoons supports job creation and keeps the tradition of wood carving in Mtwara alive.

The Makonde tribe is renowned for their craftsmanship, the carving is all done freehand and then each scoop is sanded to ensure smoothness and enhance the natural grain of the wood.

Measures approx. 12cm across including handles.

To take of your bowl, hand-wash in lukewarm water and dry thoroughly. Use a food-safe wax or oil to bring the lustre back after time.

The grain and colour of each bowl is as unique as the piece of wood from which it’s made and may not exactly match that as in the picture.

Gift wrapped in tissue paper
