Olive Wood Heart Spoon

  • Hand-carved by Kamba artisans in Kenya, this richly grained spoon expresses your love for the chef while also making an excellent serving utensil.

    The spoons are carved from a single piece of sustainably sourced olive wood and will last for decades with simple care. Measures 12"L x 3"W.

  • We work with representatives of Kamba artists in Kenya to obtain these hand-carved works of beauty derived from the olive wood tree. The artisans benefit greatly from the sale of olive wood products, with marked improvements being seen for the individual, their families, the community. The olive wood tree is sacred to Kenyans and appreciated worldwide for its beautiful grain patterns and durability.

  • Hand wash in warm water, dry, and occasionally rub with olive oil to keep the wood conditioned.
