Our Mortar & Pestle Trio Spice Gift Set is the perfect gift to impress the foodie in your life (or add to your own kitchen!). Quickly unlock the flavors of our Afghan whole seed spices with a handcrafted mortar & pestle made from Tunisian olive wood. The Mortar & Pestle Trio Spice Gift Set includes:

  • A Mortar & Pestle set showcasing the skill of Tunisian artisans - crafted in a family-owned woodshop in the coastal city of Sfax, Tunisia. Sourced from olive trees that no longer bear fruit, each piece is crafted from this hard and durable wood and polished with olive oil to reveal beautiful wood grains. Each handcrafted piece is unique. Sizes Will Vary. Care instructions below. Learn more about the history of olive wood artisans here.
  • Our hard-to-find whole Black Cumin variety imbues dishes with earthy & woodsy flavors, grown wild along the foothills of Afghanistan's Hindu Kush mountains.
  • Our Coriander is a must-have in any kitchen. Farmed in the Herat region of Afghanistan, where the terroir yields a complex but delicately sweet flavor with hints of pepper and mint and the classic touch of citrus. 
  • Our Fennel, with its slightly sweet flavor profile accented with warm notes of licorice, brings out hidden flavors in a wide variety of dishes - grown wild in the rugged outskirts of the Herat region.
  • One recipe card containing four recipes to use with our whole seed spices.
  • Packaged - gift-ready - in a beautiful gift box.

All of our spices are salt-free and packaged by hand to ensure maximum quality and freshness. Packaged in glass - BPA free. 


Mortar & Pestle Care Instructions

Not dishwasher safe. Use only lukewarm water to clean, then dry immediately with a lint-free cloth. Do not place on warm or hot surfaces. Regularly rub wood with a small amount of olive oil to retain the color and reveal its unique wood grain.

Our Mission

Open tab
Rumi brings flavorful, ethically sourced and socially responsible spices from Afghanistan to our customers while catalyzing sustainable rural economic development in Afghanistan and providing countless jobs to Afghan farmers and women who harvest and process the spices.

We are a public benefit corporation and are committed to empowering Afghan women and bolstering the country’s economy. Rumi reinvests back into agricultural and manufacturing infrastructure.

 

 

Connecting Afghanistan

Rumi began with a mission to cultivate peace in Afghanistan. Over 80% of the Afghan population is reliant on the rural agricultural economy. The success of the spice industry not only helps farmers and the women providing direct labor, it can touch every member of the village we work in. We have seen output from our existing partners double and triple, while new farmers have asked to join our network.


Connecting Afghan farmers with the global market is key to unlocking the economic potential of Afghanistan. By building demand for Afghan agricultural products and creating a global supply chain, we can directly impact the economic development of the country. 

With hot, dry winds over semi-arid lands, Afghanistan’s growing region is ideal for growing saffron and other artisanal spices. For example, in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, the International Taste and Quality Institute of Brussels awarded Afghan saffron first place out of 30 competing regions.

Rumi saffron is tested in accordance with ISO (International Standards Organization) protocol 3632 and surpasses the highest standards for Category 1 saffron by over 25%. Our test results show that our farmers are producing some of the world’s best saffron.

 

Our Founding

Rumi’s founders were a team of military veterans who served in Afghanistan with the US Army. They developed our strong Afghan networks and on-the-ground understanding of how business is conducted. With this knowledge, we built the critical relationships, partnerships, and organizational infrastructure necessary to operate within and out of Afghanistan.

Our competitive advantage is our ability to navigate the Afghan business landscape, which is built on trusted relationships.

 

Proud B Corp

We are proud to announce that Rumi has earned certification as a B Corporation, a testament to the company’s commitment to social and environmental ethics, transparency and accountability.

From day one, Rumi was laser-focused on the "why" of our work. Mission and purpose are at the core of everything we do—economically empowering Afghan farmers, inspiring Afghan women through direct wages, and building out Afghanistan’s agricultural infrastructure.

Now we join a global community of 1,500 other Certified B Corporations in over 120 industries and 40 countries with 1 unifying goal – to redefine success in business.

As a B Corp, we promise to meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
