Saffron is a star in cuisines originating from the Mediterranean to South Asia—a true world star. Cultivated and sun-dried in the deserts of Herat, Afghanistan, these whole saffron threads carry as much history and value as they do flavor. During the annual harvest in November and December, farmers begin work at dawn, plucking the beautiful white and purple crocus flowers before the desert sun can wilt the stigmas. Each flower produces only three delicate stigmas, which are painstakingly extracted by hand and dried.

Burlap & Barrel partners directly with small farms to source single-origin, biodynamically-grown spices.

The glass jar and metal lid are curbside recyclable, and the plastic sifter is recyclable through TerraCycle by following our special instructions.
These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

How it does good

Making a positive social impact and a low environmental impact

Burlap & Barrel sources their spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms. They visit each of these farms, spending time with the employees to learn about the economic, social, and environmental implications of their methods. Every decision they make is fueled by their goal to end inequality and exploitation in the food industry. They do this by connecting small farms to high-value markets, educating consumers about the impact of product traceability, and sourcing unique foods that are grown using biodynamic and organic techniques.
