Please join the wait list for this product.
This set of 3 serving pieces (knife, spreader and small serving spoon) are handcrafted using offcuts of exotic Pixie wood from Guatemala’s Peten Jungle. The set is designed and made with cocktail hours, hors d’oeurves, and artfully arranged Gathering Cheeseboards in mind. Pixie wood is prized for its sandy hues and map-like patterns.
Itza Wood was founded by Mother-and-Daughter team Suzanne and Eliza Babarczy with a simple mission: to break the poverty cycle in the Peten region of Guatemala. The company showcases products made with exotic tropical hard woods from the Peten Jungle to help fund social initiatives like employment and education that enhance local economic growth. During Covid, many women from surrounding rural communities desperately needed paying jobs. Suzanne and Eliza had been searching for ways to connect them to economic opportunities and found the solution in the jungle. Itza Wood’s Fiber collection initiative has enabled and empowered a group of 20 weavers to learn valuable new skills and to make an income for their families while working from home.
