Style notes

One of our best sellers this elegant African Blackwood Scoop has an eye-catching bold design. Available in two sizes, this smaller one is great for using with salt, sugar, spices or chutneys and the larger one is ideal for scooping flour, sugar, seeds and general baking.

Made by Filbert (our artisan in Mtwara, Tanzania), these pieces have been beautifully carved and are a perfect gift for a foodie. Many of the scoops feature a unique two-toned natural grain, showcasing the raw natural beauty of African Blackwood.

We work directly with our group of Makonde woodcarvers who are renowned for their craftsmanship, a skill passed down for generations from father to son.

Your purchase supports job creation and helps to keep the tradition of wood carving alive.
