This set-piece wooden cutlery set encapsulates Zanzibar’s unique history and culture.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

An idyllic jewel on Africa’s east coast, Zanzibar has been known for centuries as the ‘spice island’; heady, decadent aromas of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon linger and waft lazily through the island’s soft white beaches and swaying giant palms.

Expertly hand-carved by Zanzibari artisans in a workshop deep in the ancient, labyrinthine market alleyways of Stonetown, this spoon set offers an elegant piece with which to serve dinner to your guests.

The spoons are crafted from the rich, characterful wood of a Zanzibari ‘mkangazi’ mahogany tree, carefully oiled and varnished, and adorned by Tanzanian elephants at the top of the handle.  

*Please note that the color and shape may vary slightly from piece to piece as they are hand-made.

Juego de cucharas de elefante talladas a mano en madera de caoba de Zanzíbar

Este par de piezas de cubertería sintetiza las singulares historia y cultura zanzibarianas.

Una joya idílica de la costa este africana, Zanzíbar ha sido conocida durante siglos como “la isla de las especias”: lujosos y embriagadores aromas de clavo, nuez moscada y canela sobreviven y flotan suavemente a través de las blancas playas y oscilantes palmeras gigantes de la isla.

Tallado a mano por artesanos expertos zanzibarianos en un taller ubicado en lo más hondo del antiguo y laberínticos callejones de Ciudad de Piedra de Zanzíbar, este juego de cucharas es sin duda una elegante pieza con la que servir la comida a tus invitados.

Las cucharas están elaboradas a partir de la rica e inconfundible madera del árbol de caoba ‘mkangazi’ de Zanzíbar, cuidadosamente lubricada y barnizada, y adornada con elefantes tanzanos en el extremo superior del mango.
