Mninga Scoop


Hand carved from beautiful and sustainable Mninga wood, these wooden scoops are a good size for coffee, sugar, spices or baking.

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.

Approx. 10.5 cm long. To take care of your scoop, hand-wash in lukewarm water and pat dry, don’t leave it to soak. Use a food-safe wax or oil to bring the lustre back after time. The grain and colour of each scoop is as unique as the piece of wood from which it's made.
