Imperfect Large Scallop Tray

Imperfect Large Scallop Tray


Our scallop edged trays are made from a beautiful African blackwood and combines traditional techniques with modern design. The intricate pattern is etched by hand using simple hand tools by our wood carvers. An ode to the old and nod to the new.


These pieces have some tool marks (filled in, and not too noticable, and strong wood graining on one of them). The scallops on the edge may also have some chips in it, but both perfectly fit for purpose. 


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.


Made in Tanzania by The Makonde Wood Carvers

Care: Hand wash gently in lukewarm water and dry immediately. Do not put in the dishwasher or leave soaking in liquids. Use food safe mineral oil when required to retain the natural finish of the wood.
