Deep bowled, taper-handled, and ergonomically balanced, this glorious wooden ladle is a joy for cooking and serving. Hand-carved from a single piece of olive wood in Kenya—through a terrific Fair Trade program assuring fair pay for artisansa—these pieces present both the subtle marks of hand-craftsmanship and the marvelous smooth finish of true artistry. With natural antibacterial properties, olive wood is extremely hard, strong, and durable, with an exquisite deep graining pattern reminiscent of oil swirls, no two pieces are alike.
Take Care: These are built to last. Hand wash and avoid submerging in water. Occasionally condition the wood with your preferred food-safe wood conditioner (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry), being sure to allow enough time for the wood to absorb the oil before its next use.
