This tiny spoon made from olive wood truly expresses the unique qualities of Cuchareros artisan work. Hand carved in Guatemala, each piece varies in color and grain. The artisans rub each finished utensil with beeswax and mineral oil to bring out the wood's natural beauty.
Who made this product? Near the shore of Lake Atitlan, a small cooperative of “spoonmakers”, Los Cuchareros, call San Lucas Toliman their home in Guatemala. They make more than spoons, creating a variety of utensils. Each utensil begins life in the humid forest surrounding the Lake Atitlan where these spoonmakers collect coffee, jobillo, and tasisco wood.
Why is it ethical? Cuchareros take special care to preserve their surroundings, using only certified wood sources beyond that which they collect themselves, and a portion of their proceeds goes toward community programs, such as services for the elderly
