These long and elegant African Blackwood spoons are smooth in finish and strikingly beautiful.
They’re carved from sustainable African Blackwood and feature a unique two-toned natural grain.
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. 15 cm long. To take of your spoon, 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 spoon is as unique as the piece of wood from which it's made.
