    Product Description

    These teaspoons are 5” long and hand made in Kenya from sustainably harvested Teak wood.

    ARTIST: Sara Agneta Muasya, a member of the Kamba tribe, finishes wooden spoons and bowls. She was born in Ukambani, Kituii district and attended Uguti Girls Secondary School. When she finished Form 4 she married in Machakos and had two children. She was working with a woman preparing spoons for sale in the Kigale market. The spoons are purchased from the carvers in a rough carved condition. The finishers sand, oil, bead, apply bone and finish a variety of spoons. After learning the trade, she went off on her own. Sara finished these spoons and added the colorful bead trim .

    UTILIZATION: They are wonderful when you need just that small little gift that will be remembered. They are a great hostess gift, a thank you to those who do the little things that make your life sweeter. They are also wonderful in your own home for condiments, tea, coffee, and even in the M&M Dish.

    CARE: You can wash them in soapy water but don’t let them soak. To keep the finish lustrous, oil with an edible vegetable oil.

    SPECIAL QUALITIES: One of kind in three ways; The grain in the wood varies, the size of the bowl varies and the bead pattern varies making no two exactly the same. Giving in three ways: Providing a lovely handmade treasure for you, supporting Sara in fair trade, supporting children in Kenya through the nonprofit organization, Expanding Opportunities.: PURCHASE: Individually or by the half dozen. The bead color is our choice.
