Mahogany Textured Spoon
A uniquely carved Tanzanian mahogany wood spoon with detailed carving on the handle. It is lovely to eat with and has been crafted using traditional Makonde carving methods, that have been passed on from father to son in Mtwara, Tanzania. It is light and tactile and a joy to use.
It is un-polished and therefore in it's natural form. There are a few light scratches and the wood grain in a couple of areas is slightly patchy. See images for details.
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.
