Stretched Wild Olive Wood Stirring Spoon

Swahili Modern


  • Long and slender with a gently cupped spoon, this African handmade kitchen utensil not only showcases the beautiful grain of wild olive wood but offers a cooking staple.

    Measures 14.25"L x 1.5"D. Hand wash in warm soapy water, rinse and dry. Rub wood lightly with mineral or olive oil before storing.

  • Wild olive wood serving pieces are hand-carved by Kamba people living in the bush of Eastern Kenya. Special permits must be received to fell an olive wood tree, and the carvers make use of every inch of this prized wood. Often several artisans work on a single piece, with specialities in carving, smoothing, staining, and adding cow bone.
