Mninga Jar Spoon
Hand carved from beautiful and sustainably sourced Mninga wood, these wooden spoons would make a beautiful accompaniment to your table. They’re a good size for jam, salt, spices and sugar,
They’re handmade in Mtwara, Southern Tanzania, by the Makonde Wood Carvers: a group of artisans renowned for their craftsmanship 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 spoon is sanded to ensure smoothness and enhance the natural grain of the wood.
Measures approx. 18cm long. To take care 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 scoop is as unique as the piece of wood from which it's made and may not exactly match that in the picture.
Gift wrapped in tissue paper.
