Beautifully tactile and solid, this African Blackwood lemon squeezer is a handy kitchen essential that is wonderful to hold and use for years to come.
Carved with precision, it's great for getting every last drop out of that lemon, lime or orange and is also a popular gift for the creative cook.
Made by Jack (one of our artisans in Mtwara, Tanzania) each piece has a unique wood grain and is skillfully carved free hand using traditional techniques.
We work directly with our group of Makonde wood carvers who are renowned for their craftsmanship, a skill passed down for generations from father to son.
Your purchase supports job creation and helps to keep the tradition of wood carving in the Makonde tribe alive.
