Samaki Spoon

Samaki Spoon

£21.50Price

Designed especially to use with salt, sugar and spices, it would also make for a great canape spoon.

 

We've named this spoon 'Samaki' because the shape of it resembles a fish which in Kiswahili is 'Samaki'. 

Made by Jackson (our artisan in Mtwara, Tanzania), this piece has been beautifully carved and is a perfect gift for a foodie. Some of the spoons feature a unique two-toned natural grain, showcasing 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.

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.
