Handcrafted Rain Scoop
PRE-ORDER - This item will not ship until the end of September
This gorgeous Rain Sccop has been hand-carved, hand-sanded & hand-polished by Vietnamese artisans in a traditional craft village.
In Vietnam, large pots are placed outside the home to catch rain-water and these wooden cups are hung close by to scoop water for drinking.
The cup's smooth lines mean it feels lovely in the hand. They are the perfect size for little hands to cradle and the paddle like handle makes them easy to grip
Use it as a cup, a scoop, a play cooking pot. A home for tiny treasures or a mode of transport. The play possibilities are endless.
The cup comes with a strip of leather for hanging.
Due to the natural nature of this product. No two are the same, there are variations in the wood grains and craftmanship giving each item its own personality.
Dimensions: 15cm x 7.5cm x 6cm
Made from Rubberwood, a Vietnamese plantation timber. Finished with food-grade vegetable oil.
CARING FOR YOUR WOODEN ITEMS
Our wooden items have been handcrafted and are waxed with food-grade bee's wax.
To keep your wood looking its best:
- Do not leave submerged in water - a dunk and play is ok
- Dry with a tea towel after getting wet
- Then keep it beautiful with a rub of bee's wax or vegetable oil into the wood to avoid the fibres lifting.
- Only use mild dishwashing detergent if needed
- Never put wood in the dishwasher
