The spoons and forks are hand carved from ebony wood, this is used because of its durability and hardness. Traditionally this wood has been used for cabinet inlays and piano keys. Using these spoons enhances even more the experience of eating out of a Love Coco coconut bowl. The spoons and forks are polished beautifully using coconut oil. A set of bowls, spoons and forks, makes the most wonderful natural gift.
