A beautifully stylish hand carved wooden scoop, crafted using sustainably sourced African Blackwood in Tanzania. The uniquely shaped handle is tactile and sturdy, making it perfect to use with flour, grains and lentils. A timeless piece for your pantry.
There are a few imperfections - slight scuff marks in the scoop, small dents on the handle and light scratches on the back in the brown patch, but is perfectly fine to use.
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.
