This sweet double bowled set was hand-carved out of sustainably harvested tropical hardwood that was salvaged from the furniture industry—and would have otherwise been discarded. Makes us love it all the more! Makes a great hostess gift. Of course, it's priced fair so you can get one for yourself, too.
It's perfect for olives, condiments, dips, or use the spoons for something else and fill with nuts or candies.
The photos may make it look like it huge, it's not. It's approximately 8.5" long and 3" wide. The spoons are 6" X 1.25". It's light and smooth to the touch and finished with food-safe linseed oil.
NOTE: WE ONLY HAVE THREE LEFT, TWO DARKER LIKE WALNUT AND ONE LIGHTER LIKE MAPLE WITH SOME DARKER STREAKS. IF YOU HAVE PREFERENCE, WRITE IN IT THE 'NOTES' SECTION AT CHECK OUT. WE'LL DO OUR BEST TO ACCOMMODATE.
Reclaimed wood from sustainable original sources

BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF The photos may make it look like it huge, it's not. It's approximately 8.5" long and 3" wide. The spoons are 6" X 1.25".
Care: For best results, wash gently with warm water and mild detergent and dry thoroughly. If it becomes dull over time, you can re-treat it with linseed oil. Do not submerge in water and do not use in dishwasher or microwave.
MATERIALS Reclaimed from discarded scraps in the furniture industry that were originally from sustainably sourced tropical hardwoods. Finished with food-safe linseed oil.
SOURCE Handmade by a family run workshop in Nicaragua.
CERTIFICATIONS Fair Trade — In a nutshell, fair trade is about ethical business practices. Women of the Cloud Forest are proud members of the Fair Trade Federation, a North American based membership organization made up of organizations like ourselves who offer opportunity to artisans and farmers in developing countries. To quote the Fair Trade Federation, fair trade means “good wages, safe working conditions, environmental responsibility, and more.” It means our partners are empowered to build strong businesses for their families today — and for generations to come.
ABOUT THE COMPANY Women of the Cloud Forest has been working in fair trade since 2001. They have direct, long-term relationships with small family workshops and cooperatives in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Peru. In addition to placing consistent orders with their artisan partners, they provide business training and product development/design and no-interest micro-loans and direct grants for workshop capacity building. This holistic approach to business enables our artisan partners to grow their businesses and access new markets without creating cycles of dependency.
