African blackwood nibble bowl

Free UK delivery on orders £60 and over

This bowl is the perfect size for olives and nuts, but equally perfect as a pinch pot or for dips and sauces. The little handles are a unique feature and makes passing it around easier.


This piece has been hand carved by Daniel, a Makonde wood carver, using a free hand technique that allows him to have more control over the shape and achieve a beautifully tactile finish. Each piece has its own unique wood grain and showcases the raw natural beauty of African Blackwood.


The Makonde wood carvers are renowned for their craftsmanship, a skill passed down for generations from father to son.  Your purchase supports job creation and helps to keep the tradition of wood carving in the Makonde tribe alive.
