"This honey spoon was carefully handcrafted in a small Amazigh village in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, North Africa. The craftsmen of this set, Brahim, has been working on wood crafts for over 10 years. Brahim uses Boxwood as one of his favorite woods for its malleability, exceptional grain design and incomparable strength. Products made from Boxwood can withstand years of use and yet is often simply displayed for its beauty.

Brahim first started carving products to sell to locals and tourists. However, he wanted it not only to benefit the user but his entire village.
