African Blackwood Scoop

Regular price

Regular price £14.00

One of our best-sellers this elegant African Blackwood Scoop has an eye-catching bold design. Available in two sizes, the smaller one works well for salt, sugar, spices or chutney's and the larger one is great for scooping and eating with, or even for baking.

Made by Filbert (our artisan in Mtwara, Tanzania), these pieces have been beautifully carved and are a perfect gift for a foodie or keen instagrammer. Many of the scoops 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.

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.
