These natural horn spoons were hand carved on a lathe, and then shaped and moulded at high temperatures to fit perfectly in your hand.

Each spoon is individually hand-crafted by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda and would make the perfect gift for the discerning hostess. Imperfections should be expected and simply add to the charm of your handmade good.
