- Wooden Spurtle
This seasons hot wooden utensil is here! This Wooden Spurtle is a multi-functional utensil. Use it as a frying spatula, stir a pot of porridge, frost a cake. You name it, the spurtle does it. The spurtle is hand-carved using cast-off pieces of wood purchased from carpentry shops or collected in the jungle. The spurtles are finished in beeswax and are food-safe. They are made entirely by hand with no power tools. Each spurtle is unique due to the piece of wood used to make the product.
This fair trade item was handcrafted by the group, The Spoonmakers of Peten. They started in 2002 with 4 families and have now expanded to a cooperative of 11 families. Many of the members of the group are health promoters in their communities and a percentage of their sales is donated to health programs.
