Story

Made from rich, silky African Blackwood, these spoons are perfect for coffee, tea, salts, and spices.

Every spoon is carved and finished entirely by hand without using a single power tool.

In northern Mali, Amadou has been refining his craft since he was eight years old. Using techniques passed down through generations, from father to son, Amadou has mastered the art of hand carving traditional wooden bowls and spoons. No complex machines. No fancy gadgets. No unnecessary complications. Just generations of knowledge and reverence for the wood itself passing through his hands.

Product Care

It’s important to season your spoon before using it. Using a clean cloth, thoroughly coat the wood with the provided mineral oil and continue to season it every so often as needed. If it appears dull or feels dry to the touch, it needs seasoning. Use warm water and mild detergent to wash the surface and never put it in the dishwasher or let it soak (this prevents cracking and warping). Also, keep your spoon out of the microwave.
