Carved from the mpingo tree, which is known for its black, finely grained heartwood, these servers are finished with a batik-dyed bone handle for added beauty. (batik pattern may vary).
The mpingo wood used for these servers is sustainably harvested in collaboration with conservation groups in Kenya.
Each server is 10" L. Hand wash in warm water, dry promptly, and rub with oil before storage.
We work with representatives of Kamba artists in Kenya to obtain these hand-carved works of beauty derived from the mpingo tree, also known as African Blackwood. The artisans benefit greatly from the sale of their works, with marked improvements being seen for the individual, their families, and the community.
