The accessories sold at SKORDO are mostly made from natural materials like ceramics, copper, wood, and even shells and bamboo! Many of the accessories and tools are available in vibrant colors – just right to spice up your kitchen.
This wonderful shop is all about origins. Every spice comes from the country of origin. So, if you see a name of a country on a label, that’s where it's from. In addition to that, the shop itself is based on the rich roots of the family behind it. Anne explained to us the meaning of SKORDO as well as what the colors of the logo represent. She said “skordo is the Greek word for garlic,” and then added, “the blue of the ocean reminds us of Greece and Maine.”
Anne’s grandfather was a cook and a seafood restaurant owner in Greece. Thus, cooking is a common passion in the family where they enjoyed their best moments either in the kitchen or around the table. Their mission is to bring this energy to your kitchen while preparing meals for your family and friends.
