Description

Our coconut wood cutlery is made from ethically sourced coconut wood. When new trees are planted to replace old coconut trees which bear fruit for around 60-80 years, the tree often ends up as waste. Local carpenters and woodworkers handcraft our custom items from this fairly sourced wood.

Coconut wood has a distinctive grain pattern, is hard-wearing and resistant to heat and liquid. Our wood is of the medium dark variety and is beautiful. The wood is naturally anti-bacterial.

They are perfect for taking on the go and using for lunches, giving to kids for at school and taking with you whilst travelling. Also great for picnics, events and parties!

If you would like to pair these with our coconut bowls please click here for a bundled price option.

As we keep our cutlery very natural, please note that the size and natural finish may vary slightly per piece. Each piece of cutlery has markings unique to your set.

Coconut wood
Our wooden products are made from ethically sourced coconut wood. When new trees are planted to replace old coconut trees which bear fruit for around 60-80 years, the tree often ends up as waste. Local carpenters and woodworkers make our custom items at home from this. The wood is naturally anti-bacterial.

Coconut Oil
We press our own coconut oil at the centre from local coconut trees. We then use this wonderful oil to polish up our cutlery once they have been smoothed.

Cutlery pouch
Your cutlery will arrive in a 100% pure hemp carry pouch. The straw bag can be tied close at the top with 100% hemp twine.

Included in this item is:

Your cutlery set
100% hemp cutlery pouch with hemp drawstring
1 x natural swing tag with compostable label & 100% hemp twine

Gentle hand wash with lukewarm natural soap and water. Do not use in the dishwasher, microwave or soak for a long period of time. Polish your cutlery with coconut oil as often as you like to restore the smooth and shiny finish. We recommend doing so whenever it’s looking dull or every few months. Please take care to store your cutlery in a place where it can’t be broken and doesn’t have heavy items on top of it.

All of our packaging is thoughtful and plastic free. Where packages require padding, we use post-consumer, recycled shredded paper. Our tissue paper is custom designed and uses vegetable ink (rather than standard petroleum-based ink). It is acid, lignin and sulfur free and is FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council for sustainable forestry). Please reuse it where possible. Our mailers and envelopes are made from recycled materials. Our thank you cards are made from 100% recycled cotton t-shirts. We use paper tape for any additional closures. Please compost and recycle our packaging as appropriate.

At end of life, simply bury them in soil to decompose or break them up and add to your compost. They will biodegrade in landfill.

Your cutlery style is as shown in the photos and includes a fork, knife and spoon. Their ends have been beautifully rounded to look perfect together.

Sustainable & handy

Coconut wood uses the tree tunk which is often a waste product once the tree stops bearing fruit. Great for lunches, giving to kids for at school, taking with you whilst travelling, events and parties.

Plastic free packaging

All of our packaging is plastic free. Your cutlery comes in a 100% hemp carry pouch and with packaging that can be easily composted or recycled.
