The Product:

Kamba artisans in Kenya hand carve this beautifully useful wooden cooking spoon from wild olive wood.

The harvest of wild olive is strictly controlled to ensure that this life-giving tree will exist for generations to come. Kamba carvers work every scrap of wood into a useful item, from large salad bowls down to tiny spoons, giving each tree a life and continuing history in locales far and wide from East Africa.

Each spoon measures about 11 inches in length. Because this is a handcrafted natural item, each may vary slightly. Hand wash with mild detergent after use.
