Canoe Wooden Tray

by Quina & Cantuta



  • eco-friendly

Beautiful hand-carved wooden tray inspired by the Amazon canoe.

The Canoe Tray design is inspired by one of the main means of transport that Peruvian forest inhabitants use in their daily activities, paddling in dugout canoes through their numerous rivers. This wooden accessory will add a natural hand-crafted addition to any space. It would make a wonderful fruit bowl or table centre with dried flowers, ceramic balls or whatever indulges your imagination.

Harvested from well-managed sustainable forests by the Yanesha indigenous communities of Peru's central Amazon. The Yanesha artisans have a deep relationship of care and respect for the wood and products they create. This is one of the main sources of economic development for their families and community.

made from:

100% Hand-carved wooden bowl. Higuerilla wood from sustainable managed forests. Kiln-dried. Not suitable for hot liquids and hot food. Bee-wax finish.

Our woods are harvested from managed Amazon Forests in the Central High Peruvian Amazon, where approximately only two trees are harvested per Hectare of Forestland, and then new saplings grow in their place through natural regeneration. This is very different to Northern Boreal Forests, where forests are clear cut, because they are home to homogeneous species, and then the bare land needs replanting. Tropical Rainforests host a much larger variety of biodiversity and have tremendous heterogeneity of tree species within one hectare of forest. Our partner's forest management policy requires that the area of forest harvested every year be different, and therefore the variety of species that are available for harvesting in these ever changing geography of the Palcazu Valley, finds us different species, or even very different characteristic of woods within the same species. Our most common wood is Higuerilla, and an Higuerilla harvested in one location of the valley can have very different colouring and characteristics than another Higuerilla specimen harvested elsewhere.

Sometimes the wood is two tone, sometimes the two tones contrast dramatically, other times the wood is quite light throughout, and the variations keep going.
