Inspired by our love for nibbles and belief that each piece we bring into our homes should be thoughtfully integrated, we have designed this bowl with joy and purpose. It is the the perfect size for olives and nuts, but equally perfect as a pinch pot or for dips. The little handles are a unique feature and makes passing it around easier.
Hand carved by Daniel, one of our talented wood carvers in southern Tanzania, each bowl takes a day to make. Daniel uses a free hand technique that allows him to have more control over the shape and achieve the beautifully tactile finish. Each piece has its own unique wood grain and showcases the raw natural beauty of African Blackwood.
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.

Please note although the wood is called African Blackwood, it can sometimes have beautiful light grains and sections running through it. We love the two tone look and hope you do too.
