Kitchen Utensils

 

Handmade Teak Kitchen Utensils 

We first saw these utensils at a Farmers Market in Bangkok. 99 % of the buyers were Thai  people. who know the value of Teak wood and its qualities, who understand the different uses for each of the different spatulas or want a strong ladle to serve  hot soups. 

Food and the eating of food together is very important in Thai culture. Most dishes are made to be shared, with people putting small portions from the main dishes onto their plate, getting different taste combinations. The sharing of food, of time together, keep relationships strong.

These  handmade kitchen utensils are made from sustainably grown and harvested Teak.  Each piece is individually made, lovingly created to be used in your kitchen or dining room. They are pieces that are functional, useful but also beautiful, they look lovely and having been sanded  5 separate times, they are incredibly smooth to the touch. 

All the utensils in this collection have been handmade by the members of a small village in the North of Thailand called Baan Lek Nam Pai Yai. 

For more information about the village and their story of changing from slash and burn farmers to organic farmers and artisans who create these beautiful utensils can be found here. Baan Lek Nam Pai Yai 

We also have more information about Teak and how to care for the wood in our Why Teak? information page. The most important thing is not to put them in the dishwasher.

Enjoy these beautiful items, use them knowing that time and care have gone into making each one. The one you hold in your hand while cooking or eating is like you, individual and unique.
