Great for tapas, dips or nibbles, these are a great addition to any table or sideboard - and perfect for those casual-snacking chocolates at Christmas...

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth and is very environmentally friendly. These beautiful bowls and trays are made in Vietnam by skilled craftspeople.  The raw bamboo is cut down into very small strips, softened and then moulded with glue into the shape required. It is then dried in natural sunlight and sanded and polished many times. Finishing involves delicate and highly skilled workmanship involving the application by hand of many layers of coloured lacquer to achieve a perfect iridescent finish. Our supplier employs 60 people. 30 are in the main facility and 30 are home workers. All have good rates of pay and benefits including subsidised medical care, sick pay, insurance & paid holidays.

Available in a choice or red or purple.

[NB Not dishwasher safe - hand wash in warm, soapy water and dry with a cloth].
