A red clay scooping spoon handcrafted by a cooperative of women in Oaxaca, México. Every spoon is shaped by hand, and finished with a red clay slip which creates a uniquely textural finish. Ideal for salsas, dips, salts, ground coffee and more.
The women-led cooperative, known worldwide as Mujeres del Barro Rojo (women of the red clay), was founded by Macrina Mateo Martinez. As a teenager, she traveled outside her village (which, as a woman, was frowned upon at the time) to find a wider audience and reach new markets, as well as expand upon the traditions and designs of previous generations. Her knowledge and experience helped the village and the cooperative thrive, and most certainly kept alive the generations-old tradition of making red pottery that continues today.
