Our Story

Cook with love

You put your heart and soul into cooking for your friends and family.

Our craftsmen bring the same care to each piece we make—selecting the best piece of wood, thoughtfully shaping, carving and sanding to bring out the finest qualities of the wood, making a piece that will make you fall in love with cooking all over again.

HEIRLOOM QUALITY AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

Many handmade wood pieces will run you a pretty penny. And we get it. It's not a quick process shaping each piece by hand. 

By working with our craft partners in Eastern Europe, and utilizing found and thoughtfully sourced wood, we're able to keep our overhead and costs low, which we pass along in the form of prices that are a fraction of our competitors. 

fewer IS better

You've probably heard of a capsule wardrobe, but we believe a capsule kitchen is the way to cooking nirvana. 

You don't need cabinets stuffed with the latest gadgets to make beautiful, healthy meals. 

All you need is a well-stocked utensil jar, a few pieces of high-quality cookware, and the best ingredients you can afford.

FOUNDED By HOME COOKS (& MOMS)

HOLLIS WRIGHT

Atlanta, Georgia

As a voracious home cook, I always seek out the the simplest, most delicious recipes and the best ingredients. I believe in "less is more" and surrounding yourself with people and things that enhance, not distract, from your life.

Juniper & Salt started after I received a craftsman made cherry wood spatula and spoon as a gift. After using these tools in my own kitchen, and reaching for them over the plastic, metal and silicone alternatives in my drawer time and time again, I was inspired to make these beautiful, simple products more accessible to home cooks.

It is important to me to enjoy not only the act of cooking and eating, but also the process of making food. Juniper & Salt is a reflection of the values that I have for everything I bring into my kitchen - beauty, simplicity, and quality.


LAURA PÄIT

Tallinn, Estonia

I believe in "the more you do, more you get things done" and always believing in and enjoying what you do. That is also one of the reasons I was inspired to start Juniper & Salt. To introduce the hand crafted products made directly from the nature of my small beautiful country to home kitchens everywhere. It is valuing the traditional wood products and bringing the warmth and smell of nature in to each home were the products arrive.

As mother, I have started to care more about the food and tools that I use for preparing meals for my son, so Juniper & Salt has become for me my lifestyle. I know the people who are making the products and how they are making them, so I trust in using them everyday in my kitchen.

WHY COOK WITH WOOD?

The tools you cook with are as important as the ingredients you use and the recipe you follow. Cooking with poor tools is like riding a bike with a flat tire. Why would you want to do that? 

There are so many reasons to cook with wood utensils beyond how beautiful they are.
