Style notes

Beautifully tactile and solid, this African Blackwood Lemon Squeezer is a handy kitchen essential that is wonderful to hold and use for years to come.

Hand carved with precision and care, it's great for getting every last drop out of that lemon, lime or orange and is also a popular gift for the creative cook.

Made by Jackson and Filbert (our artisans in Mtwara, Tanzania), each piece takes a day to make and has its own unique wood grain, showcasing the raw natural beauty of African Blackwood. Jackson and Filbert use a traditional free hand technique that allows them to have more control of the shape so they can achieve a distinctly sculpted finish.

We work directly with our group of Makonde Wood Carvers who are renowned for their craftsmanship, a skill passed down for generations.

Sustainability guarantees

Is the manufacturing process of your collection free from child labour and human trafficking, are all workers paid a living wage, and is the factory compliant with all local environmental regulations?

Is your collection made exclusively in your studio or by an artisan collective of fewer than 10 people? There should be a focus on preserving artisanal production methods and skilled workers in order to qualify.

Are all items in your collection made with at least 90% plant-based ingredients or materials, e.g. tencel, cotton, hemp, modal, coconut, pineapple? (There can be NO leather or animals based products in your collection for you to receive this icon).


We are a lifestyle store offering ethical homewares and gifts for sustainable living. Each item is hand-crafted by skilled artisans in East Africa and comes with its own special story.

QÄSA QÄSA stems from the Amharic (Ethiopian) word to mean inspire | awake | motivate. ​Inspired by functional design and the shapes, tastes and culture of Tanzania, we have created a collection of wooden pieces for the kitchen and home using locally sourced indigenous wood, whilst keep alive age old techniques.

Each piece is one of a kind and has been designed to inspire the curious.
