Qäsa Qäsa Carvers Hand-Carved Blackwood Lemon Squeezer


A desire to preserve crafting tradition is at the heart of Qäsa Qäsa Carvers, materialising in pieces like this beautifully crafted lemon squeezer. It’s carefully carved from African blackwood over the course of a day, with natural irregularities that can be attributed to the Makonde tribe’s free-hand expertise – a technique that’s been passed down through the generations.

Qäsa Qäsa Carvers

Moved by the wonderful taste and culture of Tanzania, Qäsa Qäsa Carvers responsibly source Mninga and African Blackwood to create their collection of kitchen and home utensils. Every piece is hand-carved from a single piece of wood using hammers, chisels and rasps, before being sanded and smoothed in a way that celebrates the wood’s natural grain. Preserving traditions and cultural heritage, the maker financially supports, champions and fosters the skills of talented artisans in the Makonde tribe, who apply time-honoured, wood-carving skills to each and every characterful piece.
