History: The custom of carving and giving Love Spoons originated in Wales hundreds of years ago. As well as giving gifts of sweets or cakes, the young Welsh lover would also give a special, more personal gift to the object of their desire, a hand-carved Love Spoon.

Symbols: There has been much debate on the significance of the different symbols and motifs used in the carving of lovespoons. Many of the young carvers were shy and unwilling to show their emotions, and this would attempt to convey their true feelings through the use of various symbols. Over the centuries, many more symbols and motifs have been added and as the love spoons became more elaborate and decorative, they have become collectables.

Carvers & Wood: Our range of love spoons are the creation of a group of wood-carvers based in the southern valleys of Wales. Lime wood from Monmouthshire is the chosen wood for carving, and using their unique skills, they create wonderful objects of love.
