Hand-Carved Tea Spoon, Kenya
|Availability:||In stock (23)|
Hand-carved in Kenya, these spoons provide fair wages for approximately 200 carvers and sanders.
Carving in Kenya is mostly a seasonal job because the demand is driven by tourism, so in the off-season there is a reduced need for workers. But these spoons are made year-round, creating sustainable employment for the carvers.
90% of the price JusTea pays for the spoons goes directly to the artisans, with the remaining 10% going to supplies and transport.
These spoon carvers earn about 2-3 times the minimum wage in Kenya.
