In Belize you’ll find lots of bowls, spoons, cutting boards and other kitchen accessories are carved from ziricote wood. This is a rare but hardy (tree species), growing in a small portion of Central America. This is the wood of choice by many wood carvers, as it has marbled patches of light and dark grains that you can't find in other woods. Thus, it’s a truly special souvenir to bring home from a trip to Belize.

Ziricote is the wood that many local carvers use. They produce anything from marine life, birds, mammals, ceremonial masks, or other symbols of nature. These make a great keepsake (for any bookshelf) back home, as a unique gift from Belize.
