A unique and fun design for a serving spoon that is sure to be a talking point on the dinner table. It's a great size for serving salads, roast vegetables, puddings and cut fruits. It's also a lovely picnic utensil for sharing dishes and the handle can be tied to your picnic baskets. The handle can also be threaded to hang in a kitchen for display and easy access.
Made by Joseph (our artisan in Mtwara, Tanzania), this piece has been beautifully carved and has a smooth tactile finish. 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.
