This spoon's design has been inspired by Zanzibar and the architecture found along the Swahili coast. The elegant handle and slight point on the top makes it ideal for using with honey, agave, jams and chutneys. Made by our artisan in Tanzania, this piece 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. Your purchase supports job creation and helps to keep the tradition of wood carving alive. Material: African blackwood Although the wood is called African blackwood, it can sometimes have beautiful light grains and sections running through it. Care: hand wash in lukewarm water and dry immediately. Not dishwasher safe. Use food safe mineral oil when required to retain the natural finish of the wood. As with all handmade items, slight variations in shape, design and colour may occur.
