Small Kembo Wooden Mortar/Pilon (approximately 20cm tall)


height 20 cm
14 cm diameter
Oiled KEMBO wood (Organic shea)
Hard and resistant material container used to grind certain substances.
Combined with the pestle, it is used to grind or mix ingredients (pepper, garlic, peanut, sesame, pepper, vegetables, medicinal leaves...)
The rhythm of the pestle that hits the mortar is a sound of everyday life in Africa, in towns and villages, you can hear it everywhere at the time of preparation of the meal, it is an infinite echo of drumsticks!
It seemed important to us to offer you this object born from an encounter with a young craftsman of Ziguinchor Lansana Dabo

(Kembo is an extremely resistant wood, but spare the dishwasher, just rinse it with water and/or diluted white vinegar)
