Wild Olive Wood Soup Spoon
One of my favorites for serving in the kitchen or at the table - these beautiful, hand-carved deep soup spoons are individually made from wild olive wood. Well-balanced with a long serving handle and a big spoon for easy serving. Each spoon has slight variations in grain pattern.
Wild olive wood products are hand-carved by talented Kamba artisans in rural Kenya. A native tree to West Africa, wild olive wood is prized for its rich, beautiful grain and is legally sourced from protected lands. To utilize all parts of the tree, artists carve items of various sizes from small spoons to large serving bowls. Each item is hand crafted and may vary slightly. Hand wash with warm water and soap. Store dry and lightly oil to retain quality.
